Back by popular demand… it’s time to cozy up with Mayor Colin Basran, eat lunch and talk about the future of Kelowna.
The Kelowna Jaycees will be hosting the second annual Mayor’s Luncheon on Oct. 11 and tickets are now available.
"We're really lucky because Mayor Basran is a super cool dude. He's been kind enough to come on board with this and make it a fun event," said Ryan Lancaster with the Kelowna Jaycees.
Lancaster said it’s important for young professionals to know what’s going on in the city.
"It's more important than most people probably realize. It's important to have an understanding of what's happening in the city because for young professionals it's a place we want to make our home and run our businesses."
Among the goals of the Kelowna Jaycees is to make an impact in the local community. Lancaster said the group felt that connecting the leaders of the city in a transparent and informal environment would be one way to do that.
"This is our city and if we don't take the opportunity to help lead it then it's going to be led for us."
Last year, Basran spoke of the importance of young professionals in the community. This year, the mayor will speak about what he has planned for the coming year, including how changes will affect young entrepreneurs.
There are only 140 tickets for the small intimate lunch.
Tickets can be bought online through the Event Brite page.
