The Hun City Hunnies want to know, ‘Who should it be?’

The local non-profit community improvement society is looking for help naming a local cause to receive half the net proceeds the group plans to raise at their upcoming concert.

Thanks to the Hunnies, Creedence Revived – a Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute band from Chicago – is coming to 100 Mile House on May 18.

Advance tickets are $30 and available at TW Tanning, 100 Mile Feed & Ranch Supply, The Log House and the South Cariboo Rec. Centre, where the show is being held.

Since the amount that we’re able to donate is a direct reflection of the community’s support, it’s very important to us that the public be a part of deciding where these funds should go,” says Hun City Hunnies member Jennifer Frizzi.

We are so thrilled we have this opportunity to bring such an exciting event to 100 Mile House that everyone can come out and enjoy. To also be able to use this opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause is very fulfilling.”

Causes like local charities, people, organizations and projects will be considered. The group is looking for responses on Facebook or via e-mail at

We think it’s important to let the community know it’s really up to them on the amount that gets donated – the more people who come out [to the concert], the more we can donate.”

The six-member group – Rhiannon Elliott, Vicki Reed, Danielle Hodson, Danielle McLauchlin and Nadaya Tresierra – officially formed in December 2012. They’ve been a part of a number of volunteer events to benefit the community since then, and have organized fundraiser and entertainment events, such as a show by an AC/DC tribute band last summer and a stand-up comedy night last October.

The Hunnies have a St. Patrick’s Day party planned at the 100 Mile Community Hall on March 14.

Shamrockin’ Boondoggle is open to people 19 years and older and features live entertainment, a DJ and dance, prizes, free food, games and a boxing ring.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available at TW Tanning and Donex Pharmacy & Department Store in 100 Mile House.
