The Centre for Spiritual Living is inviting performers to participate in a benefit “Open Mic” for the local Food Bank Oct. 9.

Open Mic for the Food Bank

Centre for Spiritual Living hosting event Oct. 9

A brand new event for Campbell River promises to be a fun and exciting way to showcase local talent while also supporting the local Food Bank. For the first time ever, the Centre for Spiritual Living is opening their newly renovated premises to all those wishing to perform in a supportive and fun environment.

On Friday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m., all performers – singers, comedians, dancers and dance teams, jugglers, and other creative presentations suitable for an all-ages audience – are welcome to take the stage. The Centre will provide microphones, electric keyboard and music stands where needed. When asked about the connection between spiritual community and showcasing local talent, Darlene Bentley, one of the organizers, pointed out, “one of the Centre’s core beliefs is that everyone demonstrates some kind of innate creativity if allowed to express it in a supportive and non-judgemental environment, and this production is an extension of this principle. And besides, it’ll be fun!”

Wanting to support an ongoing community need, the entry fee for performers and audience members alike is a donation for the Food Bank.

Light refreshments will also be available for sale during the evening.

Prospective performers can get more information and register with the Centre on their website, by email at or by dropping by the Centre at 516 S Dogwood St. after 4 p.m. on the day of the performance.
