New Direction for the Fundraisers

It has been our great pleasure to host these events for the past 9 years. We've met and worked with fabulous movers and shakers in our community, including musicians, volunteers, local charities and associations. We are also pleased that these events will continue in 2018 with a new host Scott Lyle (Coast to Coast). We want to thank everyone who gave of their time, talent, appreciation, food, and donations. Your support has made this happen. THANK YOU!
Contact Scott Lyle for future event planning!

1st Tuesday Fundraisers

1st Tuesday Fundraising Events are an ongoing concert series that began in December of 2008 as a monthly fundraiser for the Comox Valley Food Bank Society. Each event featured a local artist who donated a performance to charity and admission was a cash or non-perishable food donation.

In our search for a regular venue, we were very fortunate to have garnered the support and sponsorship of the Mex Pub in Courtenay. The Mex Pub has a history of showing support for live music in the valley, as well as the musicians who make it. In the first year alone we were able to raise several thousand dollars for the food bank, as well as many "banana boxes" of donated food items.

At the beginning of 2010, we decided to include other charities in our fundraising efforts. Since then, the guest performers have been able to choose a local charity to receive the proceeds from the admission. In recognition of the ongoing needs of the foodbank donations of non-perishable food donations are also appreciated and continue to be a part of each event.

With the help of our talented guest artists and their generous supporters, together we have raised money for many local charities including The Comox Valley Hospice Society, YANA, CV Boys and Girls Club, the Comox Valley Transition Society, Dawn to Dawn Society, Lilli House, Canadian Cancer Relay for Life, Parkinson's Society, MS Society, the BC SPCA, the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, Today N' Tomorrow Learning Society, Love From Jenn, Prostate Cancer Network, Abbeyfield House, and the CV Suicide Prevention Group.
