Get your Rossland Battle of the Sexes tickets before Sunday

There will be a fundraiser to support the Canadian Cancer Society at the Flying Steamshovel next Wednesday.

There will be a fundraiser to support the Canadian Cancer Society at the Flying Steamshovel next Wednesday, Oct. 24.

The event is called Battle of the Sexes and will include a night of trivia, a toonie auction, a DJ and much more. Dorothy Northrup, who is helping to organize the event, said that it will be a fun-filled night for all.

Northrup said that $20 gets you a burger, fries or salad and a beer or soft drink, but also includes three hours of entertainment.

They will be having a trivia challenge  which will focus on men’s and women’s health issues, as October and November are men’s and women’s cancer awareness months.

“We did independent fundraisers, one at the Steamshovel and one at the Rock Cut last year they went over well,” Northrup said. “People seem to like the idea of a burger, fries and a beer.”

She said it’s also a fun way to make people more aware of less known cancer issues.

“Guys have a hard time talking about cancer issues, much more than women do,” she  said. “There are ten easy steps for each (men and women) to be aware of, and what to do. Mostly it’s to be aware of what the issues are and have a game plan.”

The organizers envisioned a fun and educational night.

Northrup noted that tickets are available by pre-sale only and all tickets must be purchased by Sunday night (Oct. 21).

Pre-sale  of tickets only by phoning 250-362-9649 or 250-364-0403.  Proceeds will be going to Canadian Cancer Society Support Services.
