Bikini Blackmail has been going on in the Comox Valley in support of B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Well-known photographer Lisa Petterson has taken a troop of young women around to local businesses to have their photo taken with popular business owners and employees of businesses.

These photos will be auctioned to the highest bidder this Saturday at the Paramount Music Hall in Campbell River at 8 p.m.

All the money collected goes to Children’s Hospital to help sick kids.

The public will also vote for the People’s Choice Award. The girl with the most votes of loonies will become Vancouver Island Super Hero and fly to Vancouver in her cape to deliver the money.
