Football, dinner to raise money

A Parksville resort manager is stepping up to the line of scrimmage in support of the Blair McKinnon Memorial Foundation.

Shawna Broekhuizen, general manager of the The Beach Club Resort, is not only taking part in the third annual Blair McKinnon Celebrity Flag Football Charity Game on June 14, but is also hosting a fundraising reception June 7 from 5-10 p.m. on the patio of Pacific Prime Steak and Chop Restaurant and Lounge.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling 1-888-760-2008.

Proceeds from the reception and the game go to the Young Professionals of Nanaimo, Nanaimo Community Hospice Society and the Vancouver Island University Foundation.

McKinnon, co-founder the Young Professionals of Nanaimo, died in April 2010.
