College of the Rockies is pleased to welcome comedian/musician/vocalist Todd Butler for an evening of fun and entertainment, Friday, May 8th at 7 pm in the College gymnasium.

Butler, a veteran contributor to CBC Radio and Television, is an award-winning comedy songwriter.  With more than twenty years of experience in musical theatre, comedy, and street performance Butler is as well known for his wit and satire as he is for his amazing guitar playing skills.

Admission to the performance is free but donations are being accepted for the College of the Rockies’ Student Emergency Bursary.  The bursary provides short-term loans to College students to help cover the cost of food, medication, rent or other expenses that students may experience while in school.

College of the Rockies’ Manager, Continuing Education and Contract Training Tracey Whiting is excited about Butler’s performance.  “The College is thrilled to be bringing a talent of Todd’s stature back to Cranbrook for this fun and free event,” she says.  “We’ve had Todd perform for events in the past and he is always a huge hit.  To be able to support such an important resource as the Student Emergency Bursary at the same time makes this an even more worthwhile venture for us.”

“Students sometimes find themselves in circumstances they are unable to prepare for.  They may break a pair of glasses, require dental work or have a family emergency that arises,” adds College of the Rockies’ Financial Assistance and Awards Advisor Lois Murray.  “The Student Emergency Bursary can be the difference between a student continuing on in his or her studies or having to drop out of school.”

Tickets for the event are available by donation, with a limit of four per person, at the College of the Rockies’ Registration office at the Cranbrook campus or at the door.
