Second Langford pub night, auction to help Downeys

Goal is to raise $10,000 says Loghouse Pub manager

Helped by an appearance from actor Dan Aykroyd, the March 15 fundraiser at the Loghouse Pub benefiting cancer patient Zack Downey and his family in Langford was successful, bringing in about $3,000.

But pub manager Candace Bitonti says there wasn’t time to hold the silent auction that night, so a second event has been planned for Sunday, April 6 at the pub.

“We’re shooting for $10,000, she said. “We’ve got a lot of cool items that have been donated.”

The event happens from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $20 each and include a burger, fries and a beverage. They are available in advance at the Loghouse Pub, 2323 Millstream Rd., or next door at Liquor Planet.
