Valley First Storage Warz

Valley First Storage Warz returns to the North Okanagan
April 15, 2013

Penticton, B.C.—Inspired by the hit TV show and spurred on by last year’s success, Valley First’s Armstrong branch is bringing its own version of Storage Warz back to the North Okanagan for a second year.

On Sunday, May 5, a Storage Warz charity auction event sponsored by Valley First will give people the opportunity to find their own hidden treasures. Starting at noon at Spall Storage, 1390 Pleasant Valley Road, Armstrong, ten storage lockers will be auctioned off to lucky bidders. Local businesses have also come together to donate more than $1,500 worth of items for the auction.

“Yuup! We’re bringing Storage Warz back to the North Okanagan,” says Valley First’s Armstrong branch manager, Ken Britton. “Last year’s inaugural event raised more than $10,000 in a just a few short hours. We’re delighted to be bringing this tremendous charity fundraiser back for another year.

“Putting a fun spin on our community investment activities allows us to get more people involved in helping our local area. With the support of our partners and the use of Spall Storage to hold this event, I’m sure we will capture the imagination of local treasure hunters from near and far.”

Other events during Storage Warz include a silent auction and a Feed the Valley barbecue. All proceeds will go to the Armstrong Food Bank and other local charities. Auction services have been donated by Paul Ricka of P&J Auction.

Event admission is by $2 donation or donation of a non-perishable food item.
