Big West Wrestling is out to prove their collective hearts are as big as their body slams: the family-friendly professional wrestling company based in Kelowna has teamed up with Hope Air, in an effort to raise money for a worthy cause.
Since 1986, Hope Air has arranged nearly 75,000 free flights for Canadians in financial need, in order to access much-needed Health Care. The Okanagan-Interior region of British Columbia has benefited greatly from Hope Air’s assistance, and Big West owner/promoter, Martin Solotki, is happy to be aligned with such a project.
“When the opportunity came my way to work with Anna du Bois and Hope Air, I jumped at the chance,” Solotki said, “I have friends and family that have benefited from Hope Air, and the chance to give back is a true honour.”
Big West’s fundraising campaign for Hope Air kicks off on Friday, April 12, at Rutland Centennial Hall in Kelowna; they continue the next night (Saturday, April 13) at the Schubert Centre in Vernon. Big West will be giving $1 from every General Admission ticket, and $5 from every Family Four-Pack ticket combo to the cause; there will also be raffles (with prizes graciously donated by local business) and candy bags on sale for kids of all ages, with a fair portion of proceeds going towards Hope Air. A much larger raffle for a West Jet flight is also in the works.
