The Black Dog Video Newsletter: It’s for Ch-Ch-Charity Edition!

In two days!

So here we are! Here’s where you can donate to the Food Bank for our Friday the 13th Marathon.

It’s easy! Click the “donate” button above and that will take you to the Food Bank donation page. Any donation of $13 or more will not only get you one free rental at Black Dog Video but will also enter you in one of our draws for fabulous prizes donated by wonderful local businesses! We will be doing one draw at the end of every Friday the 13th movie we watch and then a grand prize draw after we’re all done (assuming that we survive the ordeal).

After you’ve donated, send us an email with your name, donation amount and contact information to and we’ll toss you into our in-store ballot box. We will be doing this on the honour system so please be honourable. You can also phone the shop (after 12 noon) at 604-251-3305 with the above information. You can also drop into the shop where you can donate and fill out your ballot there as well (masks on, of course). Prizes are in-store pick-up only.

We will be live streaming the event on our Youtube channel and the Facebook event page so you can let us know all of the above information there as well. In addition send us comments, praise, scorn and watch along at home if you can!

Updates and details can be found here.

Jefferson’s Barbershop
Container Brewing
The Downlow Chicken Shack
Highlife Records
Audiopile Records

Zsuzsi Gartner (local author who’s donating a signed copy of her new book, The Beguiled!)
