Going out with a bang, episode seven of the #1Million Campaign is the last of this phenomenal first season, and is one you don’t want to miss! We are boldly shining light on the importance of providing services to support men's mental health. Jeff Goreski will be discussing the values of group sessions vs individualized care, and the variety of resources available for men. Additionally, Jeff will go into detail on how to navigate the initial steps for males seeking mental health support, and how we as a community can progress mental health services to the next level!

Kelowna Burlesque is excited to bring you a Quickie with Lethal Leesa and Tintina Tundra. Spend half an hour getting down and dirty with these local babes from the comfort of your own home!
 
Kelowna Burlesque is a group that heavily features performers from the Okanagan but also continually welcomes out of town friends to get sparkly and fabulous with them. They mostly do classic style burlesque with sparkling costumes, sultry numbers and of course the tassles and assles!
 
About Lethal Leesa: Lethal Leesa is a First Nations performer that hails from Kelowna BC. She started performing 8 years ago and has taken a break to focus on producing but the stage calls and she is coming back to shake and shimmy what her mama gave her!
 
About Tintina Tundra: Tintina Tundra is the mistress of cheeky and freaky! She has been performing for 4 years, tearing up stages all over BC and as far north as the Yukon. She is a founding member of Tits N Anarchy Burlesque troupe and a regular performer with both Kamloops and Kelowna Burlesque.
