For Pete's Sake

On the evening of Saturday, September 30th, Peter Baergen Warkentin was playing hockey with his friends when he went headfirst into the boards, breaking three vertebrae and paralyzing his body from the chest down. The last few weeks have been extremely challenging for Peter and his family, and that is

why we wanted to organize a night for everyone (kids welcome!) to come together to show their support and love for our Sweet Pete.

To that end, Peter’s partner Samantha is rounding up her circus friends and a variety of other folks for a spectacular night of interactive art, games, snacks, clowns, contortion, performance, and live music in the gorgeous Skyview Ballroom in downtown Winnipeg. There will also be a massive raffle with incredible prizes including a newly built bicycle from Natural Cycle!

Here are the details:
Where: The Skyview Ballroom in the Marlborough Hotel, 331 Smith Street
When: Doors open at 6:45, kid-friendly interactive art and games from 7:00- 8:00pm
(Interactive games include: a laser installation, face painting, learning circus skills, fantastical balloon creations by Sleepy the Clown and much more!)
The cabaret starts at 8pm and will be followed by live music.
The evening will open with DJs Jay and Kay and close out with DJ Delf Leopard until 1:00 am.

A cash bar will be provided by the Marlborough Hotel.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door (children by donation). All ticket and auction proceeds will go towards Peter's rehabilitation.
Tickets are available at:
Jonnies Sticky Buns, 941 Portage Avenue
Music Trader, 97 Osborne Street
Cousins Deli & Lounge, 55 Sherbrook Street

Tickets can also be purchased through the event co-ordinators:
