Burger and beer for the boiler

This Saturday at Finley's, there's a fundraiser to replace the ancient boiler at St. Saviour's.

As the saying goes: “It’s too cold for even a church mouse!” The boiler and heating system at St. Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral has reached its end of life and needs replacing. In the past number of years the church has been expanding as a multi-purpose space, being embraced by the local music community due to its acoustics and intimacy. This has furthered the need for dependable and sufficient heat.

This is an enormous and costly project for the congregation so they have been turning to fundraisers to raise the replacement cost and to help preserve this Nelson heritage landmark.

With this in mind, on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Finley’s Irish Pub and Grill, they will be holding a Burger and Beer for the Boiler fundraiser. For $15 your ticket includes one of Finley’s famous burgers plus a beer, wine, high ball or non-alcoholic drink. Gluten free option is also available. A silent auction for a framed, Robert Bateman autographed print will also be held. Tickets are at the door or in advance at the church office.
