Get your groove on while dancing the night away tomorrow (Nov. 21) in Colwood.

The Oak Bay Kiwanis are hosting a 60’s and 70’s-themed dance at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre from 7 p.m. until midnight. Local band Kickstart will provide the tunes while attendees enjoy treats, a silent auction, raffle, 50/50 draw and a sense of pride that comes along with supporting others in the broader community.

Tickets are $35 and all proceeds go to the replacement of furniture and other equipment for the comfort and quality care for the 122 residents of Kiwanis Pavilion in Victoria.

The residents have complex care needs, including Alzheimer disease and other forms of dementia and residents enjoy a number of therapy programs to help maintain mental, physical and emotional health.
