Grab a beer and burger and help out a local family

A beer and burger fundraiser has been organized to help Darren Daniel and his family.

A beer and burger fundraiser has been organized by the Campbell River Fire Department, family and friends to help Darren Daniel and his family.

Daniel was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia this past July.

He and his partner Nichole Steele have had to rent an apartment in Vancouver near the hospital due to treatments that will be ongoing for the next several months.

Steele’s father and sister take turns staying with their daughters at home in Campbell River while she travels back and forth between supporting Daniel and caring for her family at home.

Daniel was an electrician at Catalyst Mill until it shut down and he found work elsewhere.

Steele was an educational assistant in Campbell River schools until Daniel’s diagnosis in July.

The Beer and Burger Night will be held Wed., Nov. 16 from 4-8 p.m. at the Riptide Pub.

Tickets are $15 and are available at the Campbell River #1 Fire Hall, located at 675 – 13th Ave. There will be a 50/50 draw and silent auction to fundraise as well.
