The Westfest All-Star Fundraiser took place March 6 at the Orange Gallery. This five-hour event was hosted by Councillor Jeff Leiper and featured a long list of Westfest music alum including Juno winners Lynn Miles and Holly McNarland, John Allaire, Lynne Hanson and Thomas Starwalker. Guests also bid on artworks by local visual artists. This sold-out event raised $13,000 for Westfest programming. Westfest will be taking place from June 3-5 at Laroche Park.
