Movember was a success for Oak Bay.

Oak Bay merchants Steven Kelly, Geoffrie Beattie, Neil Rogers, Tony Tucker, Owen Smid, Jason Skrenka, David Feys, Mario Lopez and Nick Waters beat their goal of raising $1,000 to help draw attention to and raise funds for men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives during the Movember campaign.

Assisted by organizers Sydney Tucker and Nairn Wilson, through Oak Bay Pharmasave, the group raised  $1,196.38 for the cause.

“We raised this money with donation boxes in the businesses on the Avenue, raffle prizes, 50 cents of every cup of coffee sold in the month of November at Feys and Hobbs, as well as other donations from friends and family,” Tucker said.
