Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

The annual CKNW Orphans Fund picnic is going ahead.

Concerns were raised the 40-year old event may have to be cancelled because of BC’s ongoing teachers dispute, but organizers say next Wednesday’s festivities at Playland are not affected.

Executive Director Jennifer Shaeffers says more than 3600 kids with special needs are expected to attend.
