Vernon’s ‘not a Valentine’s Day party’ supports hospital foundation

Proceeds support prostate cancer care

For those who aren’t the Romeo and Juliet type, Triumph Coffee and Locality have crafted the place to be.

The two Vernon businesses have collaborated to bring locals an evening event that will donate 100 per cent of the proceeds to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation to support prostate cancer care on Feb. 14 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The event, titled This is not a Valentine’s Day Party, has brought together six Vernon companies for an evening of live music, beer, food, coffee, table and lawn games, tarot card readings, straight shaves and just-for-fun speed dating at Triumph Coffee in Downtown Vernon.

“We wanted to give people something different to do for Valentine’s Day,” said Kate Johnson of Locality. “Whether you’re single, in a relationship, into guys, girls or both it’s going to be a lot of fun in a lounge atmosphere.”

Johnson also noted the event serves as a launch of their new one-time subscription box for men, Brocality, which features Okanagan products.

Companies involved in the fundraiser include Okanagan Springs Brewery, Jolly Good Spudz, The Gentlemen’s Shop and Shave Parlour, Predator Ridge Resort, Locality and Triumph Coffee.

Tickets are $25 and are limited in quantity. People 19 and older can purchase tickets through Eventbrite.
