Treasures into tunes for Chilliwack artist

For every $25 spent or donated, Debbie Fortnum's fans will receive a free CD of their choice.

Treasures into Tunes is the fun-raiser being held the next three Saturdays in July to help local praise singer Deborah Fortnum fund her next two recordings.

Debbie Fortnum is symbolically turning treasures into tunes.

The praise singer has operated The Treasure Box gift shop from her Chilliwack home as well as from Mary Clark Flower shop over the years.

For the next three Saturdays she is selling off the vintage items and antiques from her garage-based shop to fund her own musical journey.

“I have been deeply humbled by your support of me both as an artist and business woman these past few years!” she said. “Music and ministry are compelling me forward with plans for two new vocal albums that represent the amazing Grace of God in my life, these past five years especially.”

For every $25 spent or donated, her supporters will receive a free CD of their choice.

Treasures into Tunes, Saturdays in July 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 45777 Henley Ave. or go to )
