The Boys & Girls Club of Cochrane and Area is hosting a fundraiser which will feature dinner, drinks and a Comedy Hypnotist on Oct. 19, at 5 p.m. Yes, you read that right. The interactive hypno-show will take place at The Venue Bar and Grill in Cochrane’s downtown.
The entertainer for the evening is Comedy Hypnotist, JayDee. He has toured internationally and headlined in Vegas and many other cities across Canada and the US. This interactive event is fun for all and will feature a silent auction with many items/services donated from local businesses for attendees to bid on. Some of the headlining items include a signed Calgary Flames Jersey, locally hand-constructed rocking chairs and vacation lodging. “It’s super exciting to have a hypnotist come headline our event,” explains Executive Director Jill Bilodeau. “It’s such an interactive kind of entertainment and I think people will love it.”
Following the dinner and entertainment, attendees are welcome to stay and listen to Envy a local band that The Venue will be hosting. All proceeds from the evening will go to funding the BGCCA’s local programs for the following year. This includes the youth space, The CLUB and out of school/ in-school programing.
Last year’s fundraiser featured an improvisation group and raised just shy of $6,500. This year the non-profit is hoping to beat last year and are targeting $8,000 to supplement the expansion of their Out of School Care Program this fall.
