Net proceeds go to the Langley Christmas Bureau.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students and will be available at the door or at:

The First Capital Chorus’s Synchromesh Quartet, including tenor Mike Wilcox, lead Gord Harris, bass Leigh Anderson, and baritone Bill Findlay, sang at the Langley Christmas Bureau headquarters last week, after dropping off a cheque for $1,361 for the organization.
Harris said the group has raised more than $110,000 for local charity through the years.
“We’re a service organization,” he added.
“This is what we do. We work for humanity.”
