Cool May Blues

Juno Award winning blues artist, Jim Byrnes will be playing to sets in support of the Victoria Cool Aid Society's Sandy Merriman House.

May has been uncharacteristically cool, so join Juno Award winning blues artist Jim Byrnes and friends for Cool May Blues, a fundraiser event for the Victoria Cool Aid Society’s Sandy Merriman House.

Byrnes will be performing two sets, one at 6:30 p.m., the other at 8:30 p.m. at Lucky Bar, Friday, May 27.

“With tremendous help I have raised the funds needed to cover the costs associated with this event, so 100 per cent of the ticket price will be donated.  It would be fabulous if we sell out the 190 tickets,” says event organizer Paula Miller.

The Victoria Cool Aid Society’s Sandy Merriman House emergency shelter for women is a 25 bed shelter that serves more than 800 hot and nutritious meals to women in need each month. The length of stay for patrons is usually about 30 days.

Tickets are $25 in advance at Ferris’ Oyster Bar and Grill (536 Yates) between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily or $30 at the door.
