Deez Bar and Grill hosts Underwear Affair fundraiser May 25

Fundraiser to help raise funds and awareness for cancers "down there"

Cancer below the belt is a serious subject matter and for some difficult to talk about but An Underwear Affair cancer fundraiser at Deez Bar and Grill in Qualicum Beach on Friday, May 25 is all about having fun for a good cause.

A great entertainment line up is on tap for the event including live music, comedy skits and belly dancing for Brynn Logan’s cancer fundraiser.

Logan said she wants to “bring awareness to downthereness,” by fundraising for below the belt cancers that have affected her, her loved ones “and so many other people along the way.”

Logan was diagnosed with in-situ cervical cancer in her 20s, her sister Shelly survived non-hodgkin’s lymphoma and her aunts Connie and Josie and her grandmother Lily all died young from cancer.

“This is the reason that I take part in the Underwear Affair,” she said of what will be her fourth trip to the Vancouver run on July 7.

She said people don’t go to their doctors about their issues because they’re too embarrassed and she said she wants to raise awareness about cancers like prostate, colon and ovarian.

Despite the serious subject she and her team Josie’s Pussy Katz — like most participants — have a lot of fun at the parallel 10 km run and 5 km walk as well as at the fundraising events.

At the Deez Bar and Grill event there will be a live and silent auction, a performance by comedian Randii Andii, Nanaimo’s finest burlesque act Ruby Soda and Hypsteria belly dancers.

The raw oyster raw bar will feature Parksville’s own Mr. Seafood Rob Effing Oyster Tryon.  The head shellfish producer in Barkley Sound will be shucking Pacific Rim Petites and Effingham Inlet oysters.

Admission is by donation to the May 25 event which goes from 4 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.
