A benefit on Oct. 28 for East Sooke artist Kay Lovett was a resounding success raising approx. $20,000 for the artist who is undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Lovett was overwhelmed by the show of support from people she didn’t even personally know. The event held at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort brought people together from all across the region. The night’s events included a bit of mingling, food and beverages, a silent and live auction and music. Two women, Annie Boquist and Pay Cook cut off their locks to raise money for Lovett. Boquist raised more than $2,000.
