We will once again be spreading messages of love and caring with our third annual Singing Valentines fundraiser. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it will be a purely virtual experience.
Instead of the traditional experience of four well-dressed men arriving at the recipient’s home or work to deliver the musical message of love and caring, anyone who orders a Singing Valentine will receive a video that they can show to their special someone. “We wanted to make sure we continued our Singing Valentines somehow this year, and this is the most responsible way we can continue to spread the love without potentially spreading the virus,” says quartet member Ryan Noakes. “It’s definitely not the ideal way to deliver a valentine, but we feel it’s better than not doing it at all. Messages of love and caring are perhaps more important now than ever before.”
Because the special people in our lives are not the only ones who deserve a little love, we select a different local charity each year to support with this fundraiser. The charity chosen for 2021 is the BC Wildlife Park, which has been connecting people to BC’s wildlife and wild places to encourage a sustainable society within a healthy natural environment since 1966. The funds raised by the Singing Valentines will assist them with the ongoing costs associated with the caring of some of British Columbia’s iconic wildlife.
For 2021, the price has been reduced to $40. When ordering a valentine there are two song choices; the “old school” barbershop medley of Let Me Call You Sweetheart/Heart Of My Heart or the more contemporary I Want It That Way. Order your Singing Valentines by filling out our online form, calling 250-318-2978, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All Singing Valentine orders must be received and paid for by 7:30 pm on Friday, February 12.
