The Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser is coming up this month in an effort to end homelessness.
This year, two men will be taking a dip into Okanagan Lake to raise money to help end homelessness in Kelowna.
Zach and Josh have been training for six weeks trying the prepare for the event, which will be held on Feb. 23, by jumping into the lake and staying in the frigid waters for as long as possible. The coldest month of the year is February, which is why they’ll be plunging into the ice cold lake on Feb. 23 at 10 a.m.
They’re holding a Facebook live event with Metro Community where people will be able to bid on which of them will be able to stay in the water the longest.
The Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser is being held at Sandhill Winery from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 23. It’s a family-friendly walk that raises money for charities serving hungry, homeless, and hurting people in the community.
