Sing Along Mamma Mia! The Altrusa Club of Campbell River fundraiser was a rollicking fun night on Saturday.

Sing Along Mamma Mia! is the screening of the classic movie (which features 27 of Swedish supergroup ABBA’s best known tracks), complete with subtitles, so that the whole audience can sing along. Audience members were encouraged to come in costume a la the 1970s – and boy did they ever. Prizes were handed out after a costume parade. The Sing Along Mamma Mia! was presented by the Altrusa Club of Campbell River, a group of 28 local women who have been helping the community since 1984. The club supports 20 local community groups and organizations, such as the Campbell River Womens’ Center, the Campbell River Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Parks and Rec summer programs, and Ann Elmore Transition House.
