Filipino singer says thanks with a concert

Ria Jade, the 16-year-old star of Shaw Multicultural Channel’s TV show, EveRIAthing, is coming to Langley as part of her City Lights multi-city concert tour.

Everyone is invited for a night of music, dancing and the grand opening of the newly renovated Super Buffet Restaurant on 5744 Glover Rd. on Friday, March 22 at 7 p.m.

Ria’s concert also features local artists, Darren Exley, The Reprise Band and special guest and MC, Judi Vankevich — The Manners Lady.

Jade, who was born in the Philippines,  organized a fundraising concert “Breaking Barriers” that raised $5,000 for the Red Cross’ work in helping rebuild following Typhoon Haiyan, which killed more than 6,000 people when it made landfall last November.

The City Lights concert tour is a way of saying thank you to Langley for its generosity and compassion for the people of the Philippines.

With the help of the Filipino community across the Fraser Valley, Reyfort Media, the sponsor of Ria’s concert tour, raised more than $25,000 to help the Filipino people start to rebuild their lives.

Tickets are still available for the event which includes a concert, gourmet dinner from Super Buffet and dance. They are $22 in advance or $25 at the door.  Teens aged 13 to 20 are $15 and children 12 and under are $12.

Tickets are available from ReyFort Media 604-588-6397, Super Buffet 604-427-3399, Wired Monk, Fleetwood, 778-565-7696, Judi Vankevich, 604-530-4346 or online. Go to www.eventbrite.ca and search for Ria Jade City Lights tour.
