“The youth resource centre will be a pillar of learning, hope and support for future generations in our community.  It’s a critical resource and a sound investment”, says Cressman, CEO and president of Invictus Entertainment Group.

100% of the proceeds from the concert will be going towards the ‘Futures Start Here’ fundraising campaign to renovate the main floor of the Youth Resource Centre located at 501 Main Street and opening Foundry Penticton.
