Tonight friends, family, peers, fans, and industry types will be gathering for a fundraiser at The Caprice on Granville in honor of legendary actress Babz Chula.
Babz Chula is regarded as one of Canadaâ€™s most accomplished actors and a veritable life force in Vancouverâ€™s independent film community. She is a generous mentor to young artists and a tireless volunteer to countless charity causes.
A cancer survivor for many years, Babz’s cancer has recurred. Once again, sheâ€™s fighting for her life, undergoing both traditional and naturopathic treatments, the latter of which is not covered by medical insurance. [Babz Chula Society]
The event (starting at 8:00pm) will feature live performances by The Wet Spots, Wyckham Porteous, Jim Byrnes & DJ Chris Kalhoon. Rachael Chatoor will be there as well (and she was also responsible for notifying me of this).
Tickets are through Club Vibes for $25 and will be available at the door as well for $30 – proceeds will go to the not-for-profit Babz Chula Society. Check out the Facebook event or Society’s site for more info.
