GOOD CLEAN FUN Saturday at American Motor Service saw the King of the Ring ring girls' bikini bike and car wash raise funds for B.C. Children's Hospital.




No job was too big or too small for the King of the Ring Girls at their Bikini Bike and Car Wash on Saturday.

The ring girls cleaned motorcycles and automobiles – and one forklift – at American Motor Service, raising $675 in four hours for B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Later in the day, a man dropped by KOTR promoter Lisa Petterson’s house and donated another $500 for the hospital.

Petterson said there was a good turnout for the fundraiser and noted that American Motor Service also served up hotdogs and hamburgers to help the cause.

This Saturday at the Paramount Music Hall in Campbell River the fundraising continues with the ring girl competition. Petterson says Molson Canadian has come on board as a sponsor, meaning there will be even more prizes for the contestants.

It’s all leading up to KOTR 2, which goes Sept. 24 at the Paramount. The first 240 tickets will receive free admission to UFC 135, to be shown at JJ’s Exotic Showroom prior to the KOTR card. Tickets are available exclusively in the Comox Valley from Mark the Gold Guy at Comox Valley Pawnbrokers on Ryan Road.

Headlining the Sept. 24 card of top amateur MMA fighters from across the province will be Derek Mrak of Canada’s Best Karate in Victoria out to claim another crown against Kyle Warman of Kelowna.

Local fighters scheduled to appear include

Chris Anderson 2.0, Herbert Moon and Guy Gauthier (who is fighting Brad Webb out of Revolution Langley).
