Anyone looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift can give the gift of music while helping out the Heart and Stroke Foundation

The Local Chords, an adult pop choir consisting of Caroline Arnal, Melissa Pratas, Melissa Friesen and Jamie Umpleby, are offering singing telegrams on Valentine’s Day, with all the proceeds benefiting the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Arnal said they chose the foundation because February is heart month.

“Most recipients of our singing telegrams are really surprised, absolutely thrilled and very touched that their special someone sent them a singing Valentine’s gift,” said Arnal. “It has even brought tears to their eyes. We are often are asked to sing another song for them. The experience for me is very special and rewarding.”

A one-song donation to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation costs $30, or two songs for $45. You can also add flowers for $25.

Bookings are available from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 14.

• To book call 604-765-6472.
