Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express return to Sooke

Proceeds from Nov. 23 show go towards supporting the Sooke Food Bank

Get ready to groove, because Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express are back on their 11th annual tour, and are making a stop in Sooke again this year.

The show begins at 7:30 pm on Nov. 23, and is taking place at Edward Milne Community School theatre.

Tickets cost $35 and proceeds from the event go towards raising money for the Sooke Food Bank.

Businesses who would like to sponsor pay a fee of $250 or more, which will get them two tickets and a funny script written about their business by Barney Bentall. The Bentall family trust fund will also match each sponsor with another $250, up to a total of $5000.

This will be the fifth year the tour has come to Sooke, raising more than $40,000 so far for the food bank.

Most of the shows on tour are fundraisers for various charities, which The Cariboo Express has raised $1.25 million over the years.

Tickets are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Stick in the Mud Coffeehouse in Sooke.
