Jazz divas sing for Mercy Ships charity in Victoria

Local singer Maria Manna and some musical pals are providing Christmas entertainment this Thursday (Dec. 13) and next at the newly opened Mercy Ships Canada store in the St. Andrew's Square mall in downtown Victoria.

Jazz divas Manna, Maureen Washington, Maureen McCann and April Gislason will perform a holiday-themed a capella show from noon to 1 p.m. at the store, located on the ground floor of the office building at 736 View St.

The store, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday until Dec. 24, is selling poinsettias and gift cards from the Mercy Ships' aid catalogue. All proceeds from the Victoria sales go toward the organization's efforts in West Africa.

Currently, Mercy Ships hospital vessels are mostly working in the country of Guinea, performing various free medical and dental procedures and eye exams for people who cannot afford them.
