As their sixth annual Big Blue Ball fundraising event approaches, this Rotary Club of Prince George event has already raised more than $200,000 for men’s health and other community projects.
The Rotary Club of Prince George has made men’s health a priority through their community men’s health initiative, which includes men’s health days that have already had more than 200 men in attendance. The club is reviving this program in 2018 to run quarterly. Previous contributions have included the successful Prince George Prostate Cancer Support Group, which now includes outreach efforts with the Canadian Cancer Society and the Kordyban Lodge, as well as major capital projects within the city such as a wing in the Ketso Yoh shelter and emergency housing for marginalized men.
These efforts aim to increase awareness of prostate cancer and other pertinent issues relating to men’s health, and offer support to those already suffering from these issues.
The Rotary Club invites everyone to assist them in raising even more funds for these important initiatives by attending their upcoming fundraiser. The sixth annual Big Blue Ball will be held on October 28 at the Coast Inn of the North, and the popular event is bringing back the “man-sized” roaming dinner concept featuring craft beer, distillery and wine pairings, more networking opportunities, and music from the seven-piece ensemble Pink Champagne. The evening will still feature exciting silent and live auction items, and of course the opportunity to strut your best denim-formal wear.
Tickets are $85 and on sale now at The Coast Inn of the North front desk or online at www.thebigblueball.ca.
