Bentall brings Cariboo to town

Bentall’s opry has raised $37,800, which was shared between the Sidney Lions food bank and the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

If Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts took over the Grand Ole Opry, and invited all of their friends for one heck of a show, you’d end up with Barney Bentall’s Grand Cariboo Opry.

The cast this year will include Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Kendel Carson, Wendy Bird and more.

Over the past five years Bentall’s opry has raised $37,800, which was shared between the Sidney Lions food bank and the Mustard Seed Food Bank. Last year the concert raised more than $10,000.

This year’s show is on Saturday Nov. 24 at the First Metropolitan Church, 932 Balmoral Rd. in Victoria. Tickets are $30 and are available at Lyle’s Place and online at eventbrite.com.
