Kwantlen’s second-year public relations students will be putting on a fund-raising event for Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver on Feb. 9.

The event, “Circus of the Night,” is a circus-themed benefit, featuring music, an illusionist and both a live and silent auction.

“We chose Big Brothers because it is a well-respected organized charity that is important to society,” said Natalie Burgwin, PR student and one of the events organizers.

Although the fundraiser is part of the student’s course work, they said that it’s not about grades.

“We’re not just doing it to pass a course,” said organizer Ashley Letts. The event and charity are something they really believe in, she said.

Tickets for the event are $40 and can be ordered through the PR department.
