About 60 people come out to fundraiser for baby Neve Beisel, who has spent most of her four months alive in hospital.

Children dance as Doris Folkens and Seal Skull Hammer play at a fundraiser for baby Neve Beisel and her family on Sunday, July 28, at the seniors centre. Neve and her mother Whitney Kendrick could not make it to the fundraiser because Neve was still at B.C. Chidlren’s Hospital for surgery on her feeding tube. Her father Cory and brother Ford were at the fundraiser, along with about 60 other people. The evening featured a silent auction with more than dozen items up for bid, including a heli-skiing trip, several massages and much more. There was also a dessert auction, with several pies and cakes there for the taking. The music started off with a performance by the Lonely Souls, featuring Doris Folkens and Darrin Herting. Afterwards, the band Seal Skull Hammer came up for a set of their old-time folk songs. The fundraiser was organized by Folkens and Rubyanne Meda, two of Kendrick’s co-workers at Queen Victoria Hospital. “It’s amazing,” said Cory, who thanked Folkens and Meda for organizing the fundraiser. “We didn’t ask for anything, they just did it.”
