BMO Bid for Life

Join us at the Atlantica Hotel on March 22, 2018 for an evening full of fun and laughter, all for a good cause. The BMO BID FOR LIFE will raise funds to provide programs and services for Nova Scotians living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Comedian Ted Morris will host and have you laughing all evening long. You know him from the Halifax Comedy Festival, CBC’s The Debaters, and Comedy Now! Ted’s intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile will let you know that your slightly warped thoughts are perfectly fine. He's been called fresh faced and hilarious and a real gem by Now Magazine, and called slightly ruder things by strangers in the street

Live and silent auctions, 50/50 draw, raffles and balloon popping fun are all part of the evening!

To buy your ticket please contact Elena at 902 425 4882 ext. 228 or by email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details. You can also purchase your ticket online at the SNAPD website - click here.
