'Dancers for Cancer' Raise Funds and Hope

VICTORIA, BC: On Sunday, May 6th, The Fox Showroom Pub, 3366 Douglas Street, is hosting its annual Dancers for Cancer - an all day community fundraiser from noon till 1 a.m. dedicated to improving the lives of people impacted by cancer.

The Fox Pub has been recognized for several years now as one of the best strip clubs in Canada by the adult entertainment industry through NakedTruth.ca’s annual awards.

“Individuals and families often lose those extras in life such as movies, dinners out, lessons for the kids, vacations, new clothes,” says Nicole Vezina, who has been coordinating the event since its inception nine years ago. “We want to help people and families impacted by cancer to embrace and enjoy their lives.”

Vezina partnered with volunteer and cancer survivor, Rose Currie, to raise money towards bursary funds for education and grants for non-medical expenses for individuals affected by the disease.

The newly incorporated Rose Lemonade Hope Foundation will share proceeds from this year’s fundraiser with the Prostate Centre, a self-supporting, non-profit organization serving Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands with support programs and services available to all men and their families.
