Pants Off for Prostate Cancer Vancouver


Boxers or briefs, skirt or shorts? Once you walk through the doors of The Vancouver Rowing Club on September 8th, you’ll be greeted by a mandatory pants check at the door!

An edgy and innovative event that puts the focus on the below-the-belt nature of prostate cancer, 100% of proceeds will benefit the Vancouver Prostate Centre. Pants Off is one part social, one part fundraiser and two parts unforgettable. Guests will be made up of Vancouver’s professional and urban tastemakers who are in for an experience like no other, all for a good cause.

Get ready for some great live music with a DJ, Beer tasting from some of the best Craft Breweries in Vancouver, amazing scenery outside the beautiful Stanley Park and if that wasn’t enough, a chance to experience very cool events like Axe throwing.  You will be able to purchase tickets at www.pantsoff.ca/vancouver

For more information about community events, please contact our Events team toll free at 1-888-255-0333, or email at events@prostatecancer.ca.

None of our activities would be possible without the help of our dedicated and passionate volunteers who are critical to making a positive impact that will help change prostate cancer forever.

Without you, we wouldn’t be able to support the 70 Canadian men diagnosed each day, enable life-changing research for the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men, and create awareness that will help save more lives.

Volunteering with Prostate Cancer Canada is a great opportunity for you to make a difference in the life of someone living with prostate cancer, share your knowledge, develop your talents, connect with people and create new friendships, and be part of a team of volunteers from all across the nation.
