Ranting with the stars

Langley Gogo grandmothers present ‘Celebrity Rant’ Event to raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation

Got a pet peeve — something you want to rant about?

It could be poor grammar, the state of BC ferries, or how about 300 cable channels and nothing to watch?

Well, here is your opportunity to rant and help raise funds for Langley’s Gogo grandmothers. The Langley Gogos are sponsoring a ‘come one, come all’ Rant that will be held at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 3025 264 St. on Saturday, May 10.

There will be local personalities participating as guest ranters.

The celebrity guest ranters in the main program are Suzanne Robinson, author, horticulturalist and proud grandmother; Gail Chaddock-Costello, educator and president of the Langley Teachers’ Association; Dan Tribe, actor with Langley Players, Surrey Little Theatre, Vags and White Rock; Elaine Brewer-White, artist, potter and actor; and Charlie Fox, Township councillor. Janet Solberg of the Stephen Lewis Foundation will also read.

After the main program, there will be an open rant with audience participation.

The Langley Gogos are a group of local grandmothers dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Gogo, in the Zulu language, is a respectful word for grandmother.

This group of dynamic older women raise funds through various activities throughout the year. The Stephen Lewis Foundation helps grandmothers in Africa whose families have been devastated by HIV/AIDS.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for admission and $5 for a two-minute rant. Wine, beer and appetizers will be available.

For tickets contact Mary Gillanders at 604-532-8571.
