Manitoba musician Loreena Mckennitt will be playing a show in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters Portage la Prairie next month at the Herman Prior Centre.
The concert sponsored by Portage Credit Union will be taking place on May 16 at the Herman Prior Centre between 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
"It's a lunch with Loreena McKennitt so we will be having lunch, she's going to talk about herself a bit, as well as sing a few songs," said Big Brothers Big Sisters executive director Dawn Froese.
Froese added that this is a project that has been in the works for a number of years.
"The president of our board is very good friends with Loreena and her family. We had this idea a while ago and different things just happened in everybody's life that it wasn't good timing - this year it is good timing," said Froese.
All funds raised from the $30.00 tickets will go towards helping match kids in BBBS program with mentors.
"I think it's going to be a fabulous afternoon. There's only 300 tickets so if people want to come then they should get their tickets early," said Froese.
Tickets can be purchased at the BBBS office, at Portage Credit Union - main, west end, and Oakville branches - as well as online at www.pcucentre.ca/tickets.
