Support is gathering a world away to help fight the fires in Australia.
On Jan. 15, The Blarney Stone Irish Tavern at Big White Resort is hosting a fundraiser to join in the effort to support Australians who have lost their homes and the firefighters combating the blazes throughout the continent.
Big White is a home-away-from-home for many Australians who come to B.C. to experience the mountains and slopes that the Okanagan has to offer while working and living in the area.
Entry to the fundraiser is a $5 donation and $1 from every Australian beer purchased will be donated.
Blarney Stone hopes to donate the money to various charities in Australia to help the affected communities and wildlife.
