Join The Pride Centre of Edmonton for an extraordinary evening of entertainment, appetizers, and a silent auction at the Paint The Town Red Gala, Friday, October 3, 2014, at the ATB Financial Arts Barns, 10030-84 Avenue. Providing the entertainment for the evening is a line up with something for everyone; musical performances by Billie Zizi and david sereda, and comedy by the hilarious Trevor Boris.

Billi Zizi’s music has been described as conjoining jazz influenced vocal lines with folk lyrics. “Her voice will lull you into a dream and wake you with the sweetest sounding alarm clock” says the One Man Band Festival. 

Whether a cappella or solo at the piano, david sereda’s music will take you on an emotional journey. With talent that boasts songwriter, actor, pianist, composer, educator, and producer it’s no wonder david is a highly sought-after collaborator on new music and theatre across Canada.

Providing the laughs for the evening as the main headliner will be Trevor Boris. Trevor has come a long way from the farm he grew up on near Winnipeg, MB. He is one of the stars and producers of MuchMusic’s hit show Video on Trial, has starred in numerous standup specials including One Night Standup on LOGO, and Comedy NOW on CTV, and made his US Late Night debut on CONAN on TBS. Trevor’s is a fast-paced, hip and edgy style of comedy, which has quickly made him a crowd favorite everywhere he goes.

The Paint The Town Red Gala is a great way to support a fantastic cause, The Pride Centre of Edmonton, while having a great time mixing and mingling with members of the community.
