August birthday bash a double fundraiser

Bocce, touch rugby and music are on the agenda for a three-way 60th birthday bash for a trio of rugby stalwarts, to be held at the Velox Rugby Club in Saanich on Aug. 16.

Barry Kelly, Bob McCliggot and Jim Turner decided to celebrate their August birthdays with some fun on the field and music in the clubhouse, all for a pair of good causes. Proceeds from the event will be split between The Prostate Centre and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation of B.C. and Yukon.

Tournaments for bocce and touch rugby get underway at noon, while tunes from the Deb Rhymer Blues Band happen from 2 to 6 p.m. They'll host a jam session starting at 5 p.m.

Tickets are $20 per couple or $10 for singles, available in advance only by calling Lori at 250-217-7817 or emailing Jim at cycles@shaw.ca.
