OK Corral to dance up some funds for ‘Fort Mac’

The OK Corral is planning on doing what they do best to help Fort McMurray residents—dance.

Managing owner Andy Bowie lived in Fort Mac and as he’s been through the Okanagan fires he knows that residents want to do something and he has the venue to dance to it.

As the OK Corral is already hosting a live music event on May 13, Bowie has decided to switch gears and ask locals, friends and families of those who live in Fort Mac to help raise funds.

Ajaye Jardine and The Heels will be playing, with two-step lessons starting at 8 p.m. As it’s a ‘by donation’ dance it will all help to get out and have some fun  with the cash going to a great cause.

Silent auction prizes are being dropped off at The OK Corral liquor store for the Friday May 13 dance.

All monies raised will go to help Fort McMurray via The Red Cross.

Bowie says each of us has a friend or a relative who works or has worked up in Fort Mac so not only does this effect us all but we’ve lived it and you know those residents helped us.

An estimated thousand families from the Okanagan Valley have ties to Fort McMurray. Come on out and show your support.
