The Kelowna College Basketball Society has announced that Mayor Colin Basran will serve as an honorary committee member of the new Okanagan College Basketball program.
"His main role will be to show the community that the Okanagan College Basketball program is a great initiative that will be big for the sports community in the Okanagan," said community liaison director for the Kelowna College Basketball Society, Steve Morrison.
The committee met last night at the Farris, Vaughan, Wills & Murphy LLP offices to announce their inaugural fundraiser event on March 16th.
The fundraising event will be celebrating Okanagan College Basketball along with the kickoff of one of college basketball's most prestigious tournaments, March Madness.
Attending the fundraising event includes an entry into Kelowna College Basketball Society's March Madness bracket, which comes with a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes.
