KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops Symphony's largest fundraiser is in full swing at Sahali mall this week. 

The used book and music sale is running until the end of the weekend. The semi-annual sale has been highly successful, gathering donations of books and music, and selling them at a low price to raise much-needed funds for the symphony. Last year, the fall and spring sale raised $65,000 all funds go towards the Kamloops Symphony's operating expenses.

"It's whatever we need money for, which is ahll rentals, salaries, music rentals, everything costs money, so I would say this book sale provides more money to the society than possibly the BC Arts Council and Canada Council combined," says Bruce Dunn, Kamloops Symphony Orchestra Music Director.    

Kamloops Symphony volunteers are still accepting donations, and as donations keep coming in shoppers are encouraged to stop in a few times during the sale, to find the best bargains.
