Basics for Babies returns to LEC Sunday

Country stars Aaron Pritchett, Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith will be on hand for annual fundraiser for Food Banks BC

A star-studded line-up of Canadian acts is set to hit the stage in Langley, and it’s all for a good cause.

Performers Aaron Pritchett and Chad Brownlee, as well as special guest Dallas Smith, and of course, Santa Claus, will be at the Langley Events Centre on Sunday, Dec. 13.

They are gathering for the annual Basics for Babies FUNdraising Day.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is by donation.

Basics for Babies is a partnership with Food Banks BC to ensure that all babies in the Lower Mainland get the nutrition they need.

The day will feature performances from Brownlee, Pritchett, Jess Moskaluke, Jojo Mason, David James, Petric, Raquel Cole and Ray Gibson.

There will also be face painting, balloon twisting, bouncy castles and games, a ball pit, a kids Christmas craft corner, as well as a special visit from Frozen’s Elsa.

Basics for Babies was created in 1994 when 93.7 JRfm recognized that there was a chronic shortage of baby products at Lower Mainland food banks.

With the help of several Lower Mainland sponsors and partners, more than $2 million has been raised, as well as hundreds of thousands of pounds of diapers, baby food, formula, pabulum and other items have been collected.

As of last week (Dec. 4), $128,000 had already been raised at www.jrfm.com/basics-for-babies
