Mike Schwean is excited about the upcoming Halloween Howl this weekend at the Conexus MCC Centre.
The event is coming up this Saturday night, with world-class entertainer Andrew Johns.
Johns was touring in England last week, and is heading to Canada this week to perform in Moosomin.
“I don’t think people realize just what a great entertainer he is,” Schwean said last week.
“He does a lot of old-time stuff, Billy Joel, Elton John, 80s and 90s bands.
“I know he’s off in London right now, and he will be getting home and coming here.
“He will do a wide range of vocals—Led Zeppelin, Journey, he does some country—Garth Brooks. He does some ABBA. He’s a world class entertainer.”
The event is a fundraiser for the Pipestone Hills Golf Club’s new clubhouse.
“Fundraising has been going fairly well for the clubhouse,” Schwean said. “Most of the events they have done have gone over really well.
“Last year we did the Duelling Pianos for Halloween and it went over well. This is another fundraiser for the clubhouse, and once it’s paid for, we would like to see the Halloween event continue.”
Corporate tables are being sold and individuals can purchase tickets. See the ad on page 20 for details on ticket sales.
“It should be a lot of fun,” said Schwean. “We will have prizes for costumes. Last year people seemed to really have a blast at the Halloween event. This year should be great as well, because of the entertainer we have. It’s a great cause, a fun evening. I hope people realize the guy they’re coming to see would be a $40 ticket on his own.”
