We are very proud to announce that Grand Cariboo Opry set a new record! We are thrilled to be able to present $12,000.00 to be shared between The Mustard Seed and Sidney Lions Food Banks!

This year we had a huge amount of help from Andy Dohlberg, an avid Opry fan, who contacted us and offered his help with obtaining Victoria area sponsors. He came through in a really big way, so thank you again, Andy.

A huge thank you goes out to Barney and all of the musicians who came together for these shows, especially Kendel Carson, who flew in from Calgary for Saturday show, and then flew out Sunday morning to play Toronto that night.

We really need to thank all of our sponsors who kicked in for song sponsorships. They go out on a limb each year, as they never know quite what to expect with the song intros... These are:

Breadstuffs Bakery Waddling Dog
Michell Bros Farm Brentwood Massage & Physio
Admirals Roofing Peninsula Co-op
VS Design Studio Four Mile House 
Seafirst Insurance  Dollar Den 
Harbourview Tree Experts Trio Ready Mix
Namdor Steel Reinforcing Larsens Music
Horizon Power Brentwood Dental Clinic
Cafe Fantastico Salish Fusion Knitwear 
Fresh Cup Roastery & Cafe  Level Ground 
CBC radio CFUV-Uvic radio station
Russ Fuoco Brian Gilbert 
Ken and Lorna Corraini  
Cristian Hoshizaki's Team at RBC Dominion Securities  

So, on behalf of all of us who put this show together, many thanks to you all who attended and sponsored or volunteered to make it such an amazing event.
And, yes, we are already discussing next year's Opry with Barney. As long as he is willing to do the show, we are willing to host it!
