Brain in­jury fundraiser

The Daily Courier - - WESTSIDE WEEKLY -

Brain In­jury is the lead­ing cause of death and dis­abil­ity un­der the age of 44. In fact, every 3 min­utes some­one in BC sus­tains a brain in­jury.

To bring aware­ness and help raise money to con­tinue to ed­u­cate and pre­vent brain in­jury in the Okana­gan, The Stone Sis­ters Group is part­ner­ing with BrainTrust Canada, an Okana­gan-based, not-for-profit as­so­ci­a­tion in our new Ok­to­ber­fest fundraiser.

The event takes place on Fri­day, Oct. 20, at the Mis­sion Hall Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, and tick­ets will in­clude en­ter­tain­ment from a high en­ergy Bavar­ian style band ‘Europa’, a tra­di­tional Bavar­ian meal and an Ok­to­ber­fest beer stein. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at brain­trust­canada.com.
