5th Annual Shake, Rattle and Roll for Hospice

Posted by | Events, Uncategorized | No Comments

The 5th Annual Shake, Rattle & Roll for Hospice is taking place on Saturday, April 29 at Centre 200, and this year’s theme is “Going to the Prom!”

And since “Going to the Prom!” can mean different looks for different people, we figured we’d help out by sharing a list of possible outfits to sport:

-The classic mullet and tuxedo combo (feel free to add a ruffled dress shirt or a colored tux if you really want to jazz things up)
-Feathered bangs, teased hair and a puffy-sleeved dress (note: you can use the leftover material from your mother’s living room drapes to achieve this look)
-A more modern prom look (this is also a great reason to dress-up and feel snazzy)
-Or simply wear your favourite shirt and a comfy part of kicks

As you can see, these are just a few of our suggestions, but please feel free to wear whatever you feel festive in (casual, semi-formal, or formal).

*All proceeds go towards the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County.

Ticket price is $50/person and tickets are on sale now.

You can purchase your ticket by phoning 902-567-8584, by emailing or by visiting the Hospice Cape Breton Office located on the 4th floor of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

RibFest to return for summer of 2016

Posted by | Events | No Comments

Bigger and better is the promise when the second edition of Sydney RibFest returns this summer.

Details of the event hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Cape Breton Regional Municipality were released on Monday morning at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre.

This year, the event will be held from July 15-17 at Open Hearth Park, after a successful launch in 2015 on the Sydney waterfront.

Five North American rib teams will return for the weekend — Silver Bullet, Camp 31, Billy Bones BBQ and Cabby’s BBQ Shack.

They’ll be joined by Texas Rangers, a team in competition since 2006.

Last year, an estimated 25,000 people took in RibFest in Sydney and organizers are hoping to top that number this year.

More to come.
