Manning Valley Push for Palliative (MVP4P) is holding its annual major fundraiser, the riverside garden party at Bohnock, on Saturday, October 21.

This year’s garden party will feature food and beverages, with music performed by Bob Berrigan’s band, ‘All That Jazz’, crooner ‘Hats’ Lewis, and Wingsong Community Choir to help keep the crowd entertained.

MVP4P raises funds to assist patients with life-limiting health conditions, providing specialist equipment and home-care services they might otherwise not be able to access.
