100 Heroes set on making a difference in Kelowna

After a brief pause due to the pandemic, 100 Heroes Kelowna is back to help raise money for community organizations and non-profits.

Now in its 15th year, 100 Heroes is elated to announce they’ll be hosting their first fundraising event in two years at the new Kelowna Toyota dealership.

To date, the group has raised over $250,000 for local charities and non-profit organizations like the Connect Counselling and Therapy Society, The Child Advocacy Centre, The Elizabeth Fry Society, Karis Support Society and the KGH Foundation.

This year, three different charities have been randomly selected to present at the next event and to share with the 100 Heroes members the work they do in the Kelowna community.

“In under one hour, the group will hear a five-minute pitch from three local groups and then vote to decide which group will take home the donations. Both the members in attendance and those who can’t make it each commit to donating $100 to the chosen charity – and do so twice a year,” states a release from 100 Heroes.

“To participate, all you need to do is attend two events annually, and commit to donating $100 at each event to local philanthropic initiatives- it’s that simple!.”

Those looking to participate are encouraged to follow 100 Heroes on social media for up-to-date information, or by stopping by Kelowna Toyota on Oct. 4 from 5 pm - 7 pm.

Donations can be made by cash or cheque, but cards will not be accepted.

Snacks and drinks will be provided by The Station Hospitality Group, who have been long-time supporters of 100 Heroes.
