The Room to Live Benefit Concert and Silent Auction, the latter now underway for bidders to grab some great items, is set for Friday, November 4 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson.

The special show features the The Kootenay Divas — Bo Conlan, Aryn Sheriff, Bessie Wapp, Sydney Black, Laura Landsberg and Melody Diachun.

The Divas perform with Clinton Swanson & His 6-Piece Band.

Proceeds go toward the Renewal of Ward Street Place, a 103 year old affordable housing building in downtown Nelson BC.

The funds will be used to refurbish all of the 45 units, common areas and halls. Work to replace all the windows and exterior doors was completed January 2016. We are also setting up a maintenance fund so we can preserve these rooms for the next 50 years.

The cost of the redevelopment project is $690,000 and since our launch date, November 2014, we have raised $515,000, only $175,000 to go.

Silent Auction, which began October 14, can be seen online.

Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre Box Office or Urban Legends or online.
