Tour de Rock dinner Oct. 1 in Cowichan

It’s coming up quickly but there’s still room for you to join in the fun. The 2019 Tour De Rock Duncan dinner is taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at the Eagles Hall.

Doors open at 5 p.m. with a buffet dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. There’ll be a silent auction, and entertainment featuring the Porter Brothers, too. Tickets are $40.

It’s a great chance to help Vancouver Island first responders raise money for pediatric cancer research and support programs for kids with a history of cancer.

The Tour De Rock team is currently on week one of a two week journey that will see the riders cover 1,000 kilometres from tip to tip of Vancouver Island with stops at 27 communities along the way.
