A new holiday tradition is set to begin in Kelowna this winter.
The KGH Foundation has announced that the inaugural Winter Wonderland will be held at JoeAnna’s House from 1-6 pm on Sunday, Dec. 17.
It’s tabbed as a festive and fun event that will celebrate the magic of unity and community while raising important funds for JoeAnna’s House.
“Picture an afternoon filled with laughter and comfort, where our community comes together for a time where love knows no distance,” said Darlene Haslock, director of JoeAnna’s House.
“That’s what we’re aiming for this year with Winter Wonderland – a peek into JoeAnna’s House and an afternoon of warmth and joy during this holiday season – no matter what the temperature is outside.”
Here’s what you can expect at the first ever Winter Wonderland, which promises to offer something for adults, kids and even pets.
Entry is by donation and tickets for various activities will range from $2-10, with all proceeds supporting JoeAnna’s House.
Since opening in 2019, JoeAnna’s House has been a haven for nearly 2,000 families that have travelled to the Central Okanagan while a loved one gets treatment at Kelowna General Hospital.
“JoeAnna’s House was built with the love and support of our community,” added Haslock. “The house provides affordable accommodations for families with loved ones receiving specialized care at KGH.”
That includes Jeannie Randle, who stayed at JoeAnna’s House for 11 days over the summer while her husband Ken was at KGH for treatment.
“It was the greatest gift I can imagine to be able to be with my husband of 52 years during an incredibly stressful and emotional time,” she explained. I am positive that my stay at JoeAnna’s House helped his recovery and gave me peace of mind.”
