Festival fundraiser tickets selling quickly

Chilliwack to hit the stage in benefit of Harrison Festival Society

The number of tickets available for the special Chilliwack concert and fundraising event in Harrison is getting smaller by the day.

Of the 200 tickets available, about two-thirds are now sold. The concert is to benefit the Harrison Festival Society, and will be Saturday, May 5, 7:30 p.m., at the Memorial Hall.

Chilliwack and Bill Henderson are synonymous with the early days of west coast rock and roll.  Rising out of the ashes of psychedelia in 1969 Canada’s legendary Chilliwack released 12 albums over a 15-year period producing numerous Canadian and international hits including Lonesome Mary in 1970; Fly At Night, Arms Of Mary, and California Girl in the mid ’70s; Communication Breakdown in 1979; and My Girl (gone gone gone), I Believe, Whatcha Gonna Do and Don’t Stop between ‘81 and ’84.

All this work led to 15 gold and platinum certifications, a host of awards, high-profile television appearances and coliseum concert tours. Chilliwack’s reputation for consistently powerful shows led one journalist to propose an insurance policy covering career damage to major international artists who had to appear on the same stage.

Tickets are $75.00 plus HST. A $30 tax receipt will be issued with each ticket.

There will also be a silent auction, raffle and door prizes.

Tickets are available by calling 604 796-3664 or online at www.harrisonfestival.com.
