Mission's Kenny Hess will be performing at Christmas at the Clarke again this year.

Enjoy holiday tunes at Christmas at the Clarke

Proceeds from concert benefit Christmas Bureau and WRSFV

Tickets are going fast for the 15th annual Christmas at the Clarke concert at the Clarke Theatre on Dec. 17.

This is one of the traditions many families enjoy while contributing to the community.

Proceeds from the event benefit Mission Community Services Society’s Christmas Bureau and the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley. This is a key fundraiser for both organizations. Every single dollar raised goes to these organizations as the entertainers, technicians and staff all donate their services for this evening of Christmas cheer.

This year’s concert will be headlined by Mission’s Kenny Hess, who was recently inducted into the B.C. Country Music Association’s Hall of Fame. Hess has been committed to the Christmas at the Clarke every year since it was created in 2000. He only missed the concert once when weather prevented his plane from landing in Vancouver.

Other performers this year are Horizon and 1066.

Audiences have been enjoying the sounds of 1066 since 1985. Popular in the Fraser Valley and beyond, they are in high demand for appearances throughout the year. This merry band of music makers plays a broad range across the musical spectrum. And, there is always a tale or two to be told.

Back by popular demand, Horizon is back by popular demand. The six-piece band will kick start the holiday season with swing, blues, soul and R and B. Armed with an array of festive tunes, it is always hard for audiences not the leave the theatre smiling and humming a popular tune.

There will be a silent auction at the event, which is being sponsored by Prospera, Fraser Valley Building Supplies, Country 107.1, Star 98.3, and Black Press.

Tickets to the concert are available at the Clarke Theatre box officer, Rex Cox Men’s Wear, London Drugs, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Propera (Mission branch), Fraser Valley Building Supplies, and House of James in Abbotsford. For more information call 604-820-3961.
