The Royal Canadian Legion in Sooke is hosting a beer and burger night on April 23 as a fundraiser for its latest acquisition – new stage curtains.
The handmade curtains will cover the rear of the stage to create more of a nightclub atmosphere.
“It’s a military atmosphere, which is nice, but there are times when I don’t want to look at guns,” laughed Eric Day, one of the main organizers of the event.
Day worked with Legion staff to acquire the already-installed curtain rod, as well as find a specialist to make the curtain.
The fundraiser will help pay for the curtain and its installation, which is around $1,500.
Tickets for a beer and burger are $25.
Music and entertainment comes with the package, and attendees will be able to enjoy all of it with a nice backdrop, thanks to the new curtains.
Show time is 7 p.m.
