Oaklands Sunset Market has a crush on local

Marketcelebrate all things local at its fundraiser on April 8 at the Victoria Events Centre

Do you swoon at the chance to love local? Do you have a fat crush on all things homegrown: music, food, beer and community?

The Oaklands Sunset Market will celebrate all things local at its fundraiser on April 8 at the Victoria Events Centre.

Attendees can indulge in local brew and food, get their picture taken at the photo-booth, write a Love Letter to their favourite local business and bid at the live auction all in support of the Oaklands Sunset Market.

Live auction items include whale-watching trips aboard the Prince of Whales and a family photo package from Sweet Earth Photographics.

West My Friend, recently selected for the Vancouver Island Music Fest, will kick off the evening. Downtown Mischief, a 12-piece funk reggae band, will provide dance music.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite or by calling Oaklands Community Centre, 250-370-9101. Funds raised will support local musicians showcased at the Oaklands Sunset Markets.
