Martin Street Businesses Rally Behind Penticton Oncology Unit with Unique Fundraiser

This November, a vibrant collective of businesses on Penticton’s Martin Street are merging camaraderie with a cause. Joining hands for a unique fundraising initiative, local establishments, including The Hub on Martin, Slackwater Brewing, The Pasta Factory, and several others, aim to amplify support for the Penticton Oncology Clinic.

Kicking off the charitable month is an event slated for November 1, from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Hub. Ensuring attendees begin their November journey cleanly shaven, The Last Barber Shop will be on-site offering their impeccable shaving services. Complementing the mood of the evening, Amazing Fun Rentals will infuse a lively ambiance to the occasion.

As the month unfolds, the spirit of giving doesn’t wane. Participating businesses have pledged to donate a slice of their earnings from select food and drink items directly to the oncology clinic. Concurrently, those who opted for a fresh shave during the kick-off event will channel their energies into growing their facial hair, all the while pooling funds via sponsors.

Marking the crescendo of this month-long drive, November 30 will witness a gala titled the “Stash Bash Mo’ Contest,” hosted once again by The Hub. Participants, flaunting a month’s worth of facial hair growth, will be in the spotlight. A distinguished panel comprising local luminaries, such as city councillor Ryan Graham and Castanet’s Casey Richardson, will be entrusted with the task of judging the entrants. Not just the quality of facial hair but the fervor for fundraising will also be acknowledged and celebrated.

In a shared statement, the participating entities expressed their sentiment, highlighting the significance of the Penticton Oncology Clinic in providing indispensable services to cancer patients within the community. They emphasized, “Through this fundraiser, we’re not only raising funds but also fostering awareness about early cancer detection and the imperative of compassionate care.”

The funds accrued from this initiative will be channelled to bolster cancer care services locally, ensuring that the community benefits directly from the collective efforts.

To show your support, make your way to any of the participating businesses on Martin Street in Penticton this November. Engage with the campaign on social media, stay updated on upcoming events, and, most importantly, let’s make a tangible difference together.
