Portal Players Dramatic Society co-produced “An Evening Out” in late 2013 with co-hosts Peter Wienold and Denis Levasseur. The night featured 3 Generations of the Mallon family: patriarch Hank Mallon was joined on stage by son Mike, and grandson Carson during this concert & interview evening. Mike’s band, Lazy Mike & The Rockin’ Recliners also took part in entertaining the crowd of just over 100 during “An Evening Out”.
The Mallon’s chose Ty Watson House/Alberni Valley Hospice Society as the beneficiary for the fund raiser. Pictured above are event organizers Peter Wienold (far left) and Denis Levasseur (far right), with Hank Mallon and Mike Mallon (at centre), donating a cheque for $500 to Lenore Benedict (left) and Rita Mayo (right) from the Alberni Hospice Society.
By all accounts the event was a resounding success, raising awareness and funds for the Alberni Valley Hospice Society which operates Ty Watson House. The crowd enjoyed an entertaining evening of music and chat, hearing stories from the Mallon’s about their musical beginnings and journey. Thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful night.
