Scotts Photography (6)The Golden Spike Can Can Dancers (GSCCD) is an energetic group of ladies who volunteer their time and energy into practicing and dancing to raise money for different charities and are sponsored by the Pleasantside Community Association, a registered non-profit organization. 

The GSCCD have performed at the Golden Spike Days festival for more than 35 years and in recent years, we have hosted a booth at the celebration where we sell garters by donation and take pictures with visitors to raise money.  Throughout the rest of the year, we perform and make appearances at fundraisers, casino nights, golf tournaments milestone birthday celebrations and other special events.

From the donations that we accept for our performances, 100% of it is given to a charity that is chosen by the group during our annual general meeting.  Past charities that we have supported include the Variety Club of BC, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Alzheimer Society of BC, the Crossroads Hospice and S.H.A.R.E.
