Community rallying around Dalvir Nahal in her cancer battle

All for Nahal

She is well known in Vernon for her work in the community, and now the community is helping her.

Dalvir Nahal is a two-term councillor, organizer of the hugely popular Bollywood Bang and is involved in other areas of the community.

Nahal is also battling breast cancer, a battle that has strained her financial resources.

To help out, a fundraiser is being organized.

The event will be held Nov. 24 from 4 - 8:30 p.m. at the Eclectic Med and proceeds will help Nahal cover her mounting expenses.

“There is going to be a live auction at 6 p.m. with Brian Martin. There is going to be a massive silent auction,” said close friend Kari Sargent. “It will be an open-house style so people can come whenever they want.”

The $40 tickets include two glasses of wine and appies. Half of the ticket fee will go to Nahal as will proceeds from the auctions.

“If you want to drop off donations at Castanet (2906 30th Ave.) that would be fantastic,” said Sargent. “If you can't and need help, please email me at [email protected] and I will arrange for somebody to pick it up.”

The community is already rallying around Nahal, donating numerous items including trips.
