Join us for Okanagan’s 7th Annual ‘Bands, BBQ, Beers, & Balding’ B4$ Event, championed by none other than Kelowna’s own Bernie Ryan, and backed by an amazing team of supportive, big-hearted, giving Okanagan-ites of course.
Covid has taken a lot from us over the past year and a bit; Bernie’s awesome event being one of them, but it certainly has not taken the gusto out of our champions and their drive to fund raise and support these families devastated by childhood cancer in B.C. Because let’s face it, while the pandemic has made most of our lives more challenging, more uncomfortable, and less fun than ever; we can assure you that these oncology and hematology families are feeling all of that plus the crushing weight of a sick child, who’s risk of just being in the community is way up, and the restrictions on a ‘normal life’ are even tighter. So it is more important than ever for us to provide support, and programs to help them get through this. And we can only do that if events like THIS continue to happen, and people like YOU join in, even if that might look a little different right now.
While we probably won’t be rocking out at the Laurel Packinghouse with the good eats, drinks, music, and silent auction. The chance to participate by committing to cut or shave your hair, raise some money, and feel amazing still exists. The format is TBD at this point. Obviously pending provincial and local restrictions, seeing where things are at with Covid cases, and inching towards the coveted herd immunity, but looking towards an end of summer date. There will be a celebration if not safe and outdoors somehow, it may end up being virtual again. But I can promise Bernie will bring the fun, show a lot of love, and you’ll feel great doing it.

Thank you for the support! We look forward to seeing the team grow.
For those of you who don’t know about Bernie (and you really should), he is a pretty cool dude with perhaps a more unique story when it comes to Balding for Dollars and fundraising for a children’s cancer charity. Check out this awesome video to see why Bernie won “Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser” at the 2017 Giving Hearts Philanthropy Awards.
