Every Step Counts benefits from event at Atrium building

Food stations at the fundraiser will be supplied by the restaurants and café located in the Atrium, at 800 Yates St. Live music will be by The Fine Grinds, the Capitols and Weak Patrol. Tickets are $35 in advance, available at Victoria Cool Aid Society (coolaid.org), Frontrunners (victoria.frontrunners.ca) and AJ’s Organic Café (ajsorganics.com).
