Festive carolling helps United Way

The sounds of the season will be ringing as Deb White and Dean Marsland carol for a cause Wednesday.

The sounds of the season will be ringing as Deb White and Dean Marsland carol for a cause Wednesday.

The pair will be ringing in the holiday season and raising funds for the United Way North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap as they carol in front of Save-On-Foods at the Village Green Centre from noon to 3 p.m.

“This year more than ever, the United Way  needs your help,” said White, of White House Mortgages.

Marsland, of the Marksmen, is joining White’s efforts this year, as they raise funds and awareness for United Way, which has been supporting communities throughout the region since 1961.

Donations can be made online prior to the event at

“Or join us on Dec. 10 where cash, debit, Visa or MasterCard will be gratefully accepted,” said White.

All donations over $20 will be provided with a taxable receipt.

“I am sure that it will be wonderful to hear Dean sing (as that is what he does), however, to hear Deb sing may be another story….so we are asking for pledges to help us along (or to make Deb stop, your choice really),” said White.

“As you may recall Double D’s sang for the Salvation Army in 2009, Teen Junction in 2010, NONA in 2011, Teens Count too in 2012, Kindale in 2013 and with your help raised over $12,500 to help those in need.”
