Because Bald is Beautiful

Our Okanagan Champion Bernie Ryan, is working hard putting together the Bands, BBQ, Beers, & Balding (BBBB) event benefitting both Balding for Dollars at BCCH and JoeAnna's House through the KGH Foundation, which will be held at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna in the evening of Saturday May 28th, 2022.

The past 2 years events have been held virtually or a hybrid of sorts due to COVID-19, but we are back to an in-person format once again complete with high end BBQ dinner, amazing drinks, live music, prizes, and a few head shaves thrown into the mix. Despite the challenges, Bernie and his team raised almost $70,000 for Balding for Dollars over the last 2 years.
