Raising money for Nelson’s grads

Nelson's BC Liquor store dry grad fundraiser a hairy situation

Brian Peel of Auto Parts Plus gets ready to relieve Vince Peloquin of some hair at the Nelson BC Liquor store earlier this month. Peloquin and co-worker Keinan Chapman enticed could-be donators with the chance to remove their hair for a $100 donation to the dry grad fundraiser, which helps graduating high-school students with their rite of passage celebrations. Peel, with the help of his co-workers, donated the $100 to the liquor store’s dry grad fundraiser. The BC Liquor store is continuing to sell $1 chocolates to raise money as well, donations can also be made there.
