Hospital auxiliary hosts songs for goodwill

South Surrey concert to feature the Vancouver Orpheus Male Choir.

A Christmas concert to benefit the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary’s Kay Hogg Goodwill Group is set to take the stage Dec. 13 at Mount Olive Lutheran Church (2350 148 St.) in South Surrey.

Volunteer Alicia Hagerman said the afternoon event – dubbed Songs for a Winter’s Night – will feature the Vancouver Orpheus Male Choir; tickets include refreshments at intermission and a chance at door prizes.

Many of the choir members live on the Peninsula, Hagerman noted.

It’s hoped the event will raise about $5,000. The proceeds are to be split between the auxiliary and the choir.

There are a maximum of 250 tickets available. They may be purchased ($25 adults; $20 seniors/students) at the hospital gift shop, through Hagerman at 604-536-5634, or via the Orpheus info line, 604-515-5686.
