As the saying goes, “It’s too cold for even a church mouse!”

The Boiler Makers are back again for the second annual Burger & Beer for the Boiler. 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.

The on-going fundraising has almost reached the needed amount to commence the first stage of this enormous and costly project. Help them push it over the top by attending the Burger & Beer for the Boiler fundraiser on Saturday, Jan. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Finley’s Irish Pub & Grill.

Your ticket includes one of Finley’s burgers plus a beer, wine, high ball or non-alcoholic drink. Gluten-free option is also available. There will also be door prizes and a silent auction. Tickets available at the door or in advance at the church office.
