Thousands have already been donated to the Kitsilano Showboat. A fire over the weekend at the Kitsilano Showboat badly damaged the iconic community stage.

Now the society that runs shows there is fundraising to stay afloat. Already the Kitsilano Showboat Society has raised more than $13,500 to cover losses incurred by the fire, though their goal is $50,000, according to a GoFundMe campaign page set up by society president Barry Leinbach. “Your generous donation will go towards helping the Kitsilano Showboat Society recover our losses,” states Leinbach on the GoFundMe page. “With your support, we can continue producing amazing performances and creating lifelong memories.”
