An evening with Mike Harcourt at the Mary Irwin Theatre in the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Oct. 15, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Pathways Abilities Society will present an evening with Mike Harcourt at the Mary Irwin Theatre in the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Oct. 15, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Harcourt, a former NDP premier of B.C. who has overcome serious injuries resulting from a fall at his Gulf Island cabin, will discuss his life, his career and his personal story of living with a disability.

Pathways Abilities Society, formerly the Kelowna & District Society for Community Living, assists people with disabilities to reach their individual goals and contribute as equal members of the community.

Pathways executive director, Charisse Daley said: “Mike is such a beloved and iconic figure in B.C. and his story is so inspirational. We hope the evening will help shed more light on the issues surrounding disabilities.” While admission for the evening is free,  theatre seating is limited.
