Spotlight on Local Businesses Giving Back

Tomorrow is the 7th annual Bachelor Auction Fundraiser, an initiative that we proudly support and help execute every year. This fundraiser is a lot of fun, and a unique way to raise money for a great cause, Survive and Thrive Cancer Programs. Every year, ten bachelors are auctioned off, bringing unique date experiences to the table for the lucky winners. Since inception, this event has raised over $46,000 for cancer research and programs in Alberta, so we are looking forward to cracking that $50,000 mark this year!

Each year of this event, we turn to local businesses to help out with donated items for our raffles, prizing, etc. This year, the call was answered in a big way so we want to highlight some of the great local companies that stepped up!

Best of Seven Barbers


We designed Best of Seven to deliver five distinct experiences and worked to make each one the best possible from our client’s perspective. It starts at check-in. Rare for a barbershop, we have a reception staff. They will hang up your coat, store your workbag and get you a cup of coffee. You’re then directed to the bar, where you have a seat and read a magazine while you watch the sports or business highlights. We have free Wi-Fi and phone charging too.

When your barber is close to finishing their current client, one of our awesome reception staff will take you to the sinks where you’ll get a shampoo, conditioning,
‘turn you to jelly’ scalp massage and hot or cold towel. From here your barber will wake you and take you to their chair. Aside from an amazing cut, you’ll appreciate we have the highest hygiene standards you’ll find anywhere.

Best of Seven Barbers are clients and friends of ours, and generously donated their services to our bachelors this year, so the gents can look spiffy for the big night.
