Hoist a beer and a burger to help local family

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

A Beer and Burger fundraiser has been organized by the Campbell River Fire Department, family and friends to help Darren Daniel, his wife  Nichole and two daughters.

Darren was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia this past July. He and his partner Nichole have had to rent an apartment in Vancouver near the hospital due to treatments that will be ongoing for the next several months. Nichole’s father and sister take turns staying with their daughters at home in Campbell River while she travels back and forth between supporting Darren and caring for her family at home. Darren 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 Darren’s diagnosis in July.

The Beer and Burger Night will be held Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 4-8 p.m. at the Riptide Pub. Tickets are $15 and are available at the #1 Fire Hall (675 – 13th Avenue). There will be a 50/50 draw and silent auction as well.

For more information, contact Laura at 250-286-6266.
