On Saturday, August 25, country will take over Constance Bay as the Constance & Buckham’s Bay Community Association hosts a Remembering Gayla Benefit for Jaxon and Brent (Chico). This will be a night of non-stop entertainment. Nine of the Valley’s best will be performing including: The Bowes Brothers, Mountain Tay, and Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame members Howard Hayes & the Country Drifters. This will be an indoor concert at the Northwind Centre, 262 Len Purcell Drive. Capacity is limited to 210, so reserve your tickets early! There will be a complimentary BBQ at 6pm and doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 including the pre-event BBQ.
Many people were deeply touched by Gayla is so many ways. She attacked everything with passion and a brilliant smile. She believed in putting the joy back in sport and, despite being seriously injured in two car crashes, never missed a beat in that pursuit. She invested enormous time making sure kids had positive, memorable experiences. Her husband Chico is a stay at home father and he quietly shared Gayla’s passion. In recent years he obtained coaching certifications in 3 sports and coached seven teams in a single year. Chico and Jax have suffered the worst loss and their financial future is, at best, very difficult. CBBCA's goal with this benefit is simply to try and help buy a small space between the emotional trauma of the present and the difficult financial situation ahead. All of the proceeds go to Jaxon & Chico. Please go to www.cbbca.ca for tickets.

We want you to remember this incredible night! Embrace your inner spy and become a master of disguise in our themed photo booth! You’ll be able to go home with printed photos and then access the digital ones online after the party is over! Cash bar. No ATM on site. Your ticket includes:
