Healing Through Music takes place Saturday

Chilliwack women raise money for Music Heals

Healing Through Music is a fundraiser for B.C. charity Music Heals on April 8 at Wilde Oscar’s Pub

Two Chilliwack women are holding a fundraiser to spread the word about the healing qualities of music.

Tanya Schiiler and Kelly Trenouth are hosting Healing Through Music, a fundraiser for B.C. charity Music Heals on April 8 at Wilde Oscar’s Pub.

Music Heals is a foundation that is made up of a group of music lovers who help provide communities with music therapy in B.C. and across Canada. They increase access to music therapy for patients in children’s hospitals, senior’s centres, palliative care, AIDS & HIV programs, at-risk youth, habilitation, and bereavement support.

Inspired by their children who love music, Schiiler and Trenouth truly believe in the healing powers of music and they want to share that with the community.

What started off as a small friends-and-family fundraiser has turned into a large event due to the generosity of the music and business community here in Chilliwack.

The event features music by five live bands that have volunteered their time: The Lounge Hounds, Rockabilly Jay & The Cadillac Bones, Twyla Wallace & Kylene Shannon, Fred McDonald, and Nikki Melody.

There will also be a silent auction from 7 to 9 p.m.

Admission is $5 at the door or a donated iPod in good condition (Music Heals takes donated iPods and puts music on them for patients awaiting cancer treatments).

One hundred per cent of all proceeds raised on April 8 are going to Music Heals. It is a not-for-profit society incorporated in British Columbia and is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charitable foundation.

Healing Through Music takes place Saturday, April 8 at 7 p.m. at Wilde Oscar’s Pub on Wellington. More info: facebook.com/events/179566222549154.
