On April 6th, Olio made his first full bodied outing into the world, amidst a crowd of jesters, accordion players, jugglers, celebrity waiters, and flappers at an annual fundraising event for Citizens Counselling, Tip-a-Fool. Citizens Counselling is a non-profit which offers affordable counselling to members of the Victoria community through a process of matching trained volunteers and people in need of an ear: aka. citizens counselling citizens.
Dancing tango to live accordion as celebrity waiters gathered donations from guests, Olio’s first night out was a rather surreal affair. The fellow even had the opportunity to blow bubbles with fellow volunteer, Victoria NDP MP Murray Rankin.
