The riding associations from Cloverdale-Langley City, South Surrey-White Rock and Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam are sponsoring the event, which includes a brunch.

Tickets are $100 each. The  event is a fundraiser for the upcoming Liberal campaigns in  those three ridings.

Brunch begins at 10:30 a.m. with Harris speaking at 12 p.m.

The event takes place at he Pacific Inn, located at 1160 King George Boulevard in South Surrey.
