Lending Cupboard in Red Deer will feature Jann Arden in January

Ticket sales started Wednesday

Jann Arden can bring a hall full of people to tears through song, only to have them, moments later, rolling in the aisles from her off-the-cuff comedy.

Red Deerians will be able to enjoy her music and storytelling skills in January. The Lending Cupboard Society of Alberta has announced its inaugural winter luncheon featuring Arden on Jan. 28 at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel.

Ticket purchases are available at Black Knight Inn ticket centre or by calling 403-755-6626.

Since 2006, The Lending Cupboard has been serving the people of Central Alberta with the loan of medical equipment and daily living aids to enhance their quality of life by maintaining their mobility, independence and dignity.

In 2017-18, the agency lent out 17,000 pieces of equipment to upwards of 10,000 clients, with the assistance of 11,000 volunteers hours.
