Did you Dress Red?

By Karen McColl

This year’s Dress Red for the Heart and Stroke event raised over $800 according to its chief organizer, Jim Holdener of the Revelstoke Pharmasave.

Similar to last year, about 20 local workplaces participated with over 160 participants parting with $5 each in return for a pin and a good feeling.

Several other workplaces also dressed red on Friday — cheering Canada on in the Olympics?

You can “see red” in the pictures below:
