Bor­der Hockey dance tick­ets sell­ing fast

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Tick­ets are sell­ing like hot­cakes for this Satur­day night’s dance at the Pat Burns Arena, a fundraiser for the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion, thanks to croon­ers Dany Flan­ders and his mother, Lise, who will be per­form­ing for the oc­ca­sion. Lise will warm up the din­ner crowd in the arena’s restau­rant be­fore the dance, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, while her fa­mous son will be­gin his show at 8:00 pm.

When asked if she had ever opened for her son be­fore, Mrs. Flan­ders said: “I never thought about it that way but you’re right, it is the first time!”

“I re­mem­ber play­ing mi­nor hockey when grow­ing up, so when I heard from the boys at the arena that the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey needed money, I agreed to do this ben­e­fit,” ex­plained Dany. “I’ll be play­ing some clas­sic rock, some coun­try, old stan­dards, a lit­tle of ev­ery­thing and some­thing for ev­ery­body. I heard that they have sold a lot of tick­ets and that they’re run­ning out of room, so it should be a good night!”

Af­ter ap­pear­ing on La Voix in the spring, Mr. Flan­ders, who has his home base in Florida, has been tour­ing all over Que­bec. “It’s been hec­tic. I’ve put about 25,000 kilo­me­tres on my car driv­ing all over the prov­ince and, in the last nine months, I’ve only been home in Florida for about three weeks. I’ll be go­ing back there in a few weeks to set­tle down a lit­tle and work out my win­ter sched­ule,” he said.

Dany Flan­ders will be tak­ing part in an­other ben­e­fit con­cert next Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 18th, at the Vieux Clocher, in Ma­gog, for the vic­tims of the Lac Megantic disas­ter. He will per­form there with Rick Hughes, Hugo Lapointe and An­dreanne Mal­lette.

Dany Flan­ders will rock the Pat Burns Arena, this Satur­day night, to raise money for Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey.
