SOUTH SURREY – Musicians Payton Rector and "Really Rod" (a tribute to Rod Stewart) will entertain crowds Saturday, Sept. 14 at a fundraiser for the big "extreme makeover" project next month at Alexandra Neighbourhood House.
Saturday's benefit event will be held at Crescent Beach Legion, 2643 128th St., South Surrey, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 via 604-535-0015, or at the door.
In October, plans are to renovate the "Camp Alex" longhouse facility with the help of a legion of volunteers and project sponsors.
"It's a full-on, major renovation, but it all really depends on what we're able to source out," said Penny Bradley, executive director of the neighbourhood house.
The longhouse was built in the 1980s, and it's showing its age.
The goal of the renovation project is to attract more corporate and group rentals.
"We're looking at doing things like blowing out some walls, creating some more open space," Bradley explained.
The budget for the renovation project is around $300,000, and the work party is slated to happen from Oct. 18 to 20.
