Party like it’s ‘Oktoberfest’ on Oct. 20

Annual event will feature food and entertainment — German-style

The Sooke District Lioness will be holding their annual Oktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Sooke Legion from 5:45 to 9 p.m.

The event brings a taste of Germany to Sooke with an authentic Oktoberfest dinner. On the menu is a feast of German sausages in buns, sauerkraut, potato salad and red cabbage.

The meal will be polished off with a choice of apple strudel or chocolate cake for desert.

“It’s basically the same thing you would have in Germany,” said Anne Scott, Sooke District Lioness.

“The atmosphere is terrific. We normally sell out, (so) people should be looking to buy their tickets as soon as possible.”

Live music will also echo throughout the room, with Mary Ross on the accordion and Janet Mctavish on vocals. The evening will be Mccd by Paul Mctavish.

Scott said proceeds from the event will go towards charitable efforts for women and children — namely, the Lioness’ Santa Sacks project and Literacy Program.

The Santa Sacks project gives children in need a care package for the holiday season, which includes a toy, gift certificate from a local shop, a tin of biscuits and articles of warm clothing.

The Literacy Program supplies books to the Port Renfrew elementary school and educational items for the Pacific West Alternative school.

There are 115 tickets available at $15 each. Tickets can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart, Peoples Drug Mart or Pemberton Holmes.

Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the event will take place upstairs at the Legion, which is wheel chair accessible.

Draw prizes will also be given out throughout the evening.
