Storage Wars helps charity

The Community Dental Access Centre and the Vernon Flying Club’s Christmas family program will benefit from the event

North Okanagan Storage Wars returns with an auction that will fix smiles and create them.

The Community Dental Access Centre and the Vernon Flying Club’s Christmas family program will benefit from the event at The Stor-it Place Saturday at 10 a.m.

“It will be a fun afternoon with the auction proceeding just like on the Storage Wars television show, and improving smiles and creating new ones is always a worthwhile effort,” said auctioneer Kevin Rothwell.

The CDAC will have a silent auction and storage locker full of donated items that will be auctioned off, with the proceeds assisting the program.

The flying club will hold a lunch-time barbecue and also have a storage locker.

Registration starts at 11 a.m. and guitarist Chris Madsen will entertain until the auction starts at 1 p.m.

“Whether or not you intend to bid, come out and join the fun, watch the action, enjoy the barbecue and support a very worthwhile cause” said Ariel Tyk Stor-it Place owner.

“This is a charity event, with proceeds from the charity lockers, the barbecue and the $2 admission fee being used to support local families and individuals through the CDAC urgent dental care program and the VFC Christmas family initiative.”

The Stor-it Place is located at 2504 43rd St.

In its first year, the Community Dental Access Centre assisted 900 patients that couldn’t afford dental coverage.

Working with the North Okanagan Youth and Family Services Society) the Vernon Flying Club helps bring Christmas to families who do not have the means to celebrate the season.
