A Cowboy Christmas is coming to town – and it will help those in need.
Vernon country singer Rob Dinwoodie will be at the Vernon Alliance Church Dec. 16 for some classic cowboy carols and songs.
Dinwoodie will be joined on stage by Dixon Zalit and Tim Boulter for the concert, which runs from 7 to 9 p.m.
“It's a family friendly event,” Dinwoodie says of the evening, which also features a drama with Vernon's own Jason Armstrong.
“It's a twist on the Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol and the drama is going to be associated song, music and cowboy poetry.”
North Okanagan historian and author Ken Mather will host the event as well as deliver some of his own cowboy poetry.
“We're going to do some traditional and original Christmas songs in kind of the cowboy way,” Dinwoodie says.
All proceeds from the event will go the church's Common Threads program, which helps the less fortunate in the city.
“So people are giving to the needy in our community,” he adds.
Tickets are available online.
