Community support shines through in Extra-Vivi-Ganza

It’s a gala for Vivi, or and Extra-Vivi-Ganza.

Members of the local music community are sharing their talents with a goal of helping Vivi de Graff, a local woman battling her second round of breast cancer.

The Extra-Vivi-Ganza will feature performances by singer-songwriters Bill Levity, Paul Ruszel, Genevieve Charbonneau, pianist Ron Kilian, soprano Annette Lampson, harpist Lahna Lampson and violinist Nikolai Lampson as well as belly dance performers, The Hilwi’s.

A silent auction  begins at the event and continues afterward for two weeks online at https://www.facebook.com/ExtraViviGanzaAuction/.

It includes art from Paul Fletcher and Jennifer Lawson and kayaking on the bay with Coastal Bliss Adventures as well as a share for the community supported fishery Michelle Rose and a weekend getaway at OUR Ecovillage.

Extra-Vivi-Ganza happens Saturday, June 28 at 7 p.m. at Island Oak High School, 5814 Banks Rd, Duncan and everyone is welcome by donation. All proceeds go directly to healing treatments.
