On Friday, March 15 at 7 pm, Christ Church Anglican is hosting Great Plains, a veteran touring duo, for a fundraising music concert. Saskia and Darrel of Great Plains deliver “a taste of Celtic, a dab of bluegrass, a touch of folk all wrapped around extremely beautiful melodies.”

All profits from this event go towards the “All Mothers and Children Count” initiative of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), which supports maternal, newborn and children’s health in rural areas of Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi and Mozambique. "And guess what?" remarks Reverend Andrea Brennan, "Global Affairs Canada matches our donation an amazing 6:1! So, come on out! All are welcome.”

The $15 tickets are available at Fernie Stationers or by emailing christchurchfernie@gmail.com. For more information visit christchurchfernie.ca, thegreatplains.ca and pwrdf.org.
