Beer, Burgers & Blades

The YPAV will be holding a Movember fundraiser at the Westwind Pub on Sunday, Nov. 30.

Movember is ending and the Young Professionals of the Alberni Valley are here to help you shave off that moustache and help out the Movember Foundation at the same time.

The YPAV will be hosting Beers, Burgers and Blades at the Westwind Pub on Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. Straight-razor shaves will be provided courtesy of Hone & Strop Barber Co. and there’ll be a silent auction, 50/50 prizes and a meat draw for the less hirsute.

Tickets are $15, include a beer and a burger and are available from Gayle’s Fashion, Cloud City and Magic Moments. Limited amounts will be available at the door.
