It is corporate support like this that helps us to give children and youth the best possible opportunity to learn and grow to be successful, contributing people in our communities,” said Richelle Leckey, events coordinator for the Okanagnan Boys and Girls Clubs.

For more than 55 years the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club  has been a leading provider of programs to children and youth that support the healthy physical, educational and social development of more than 6,000 young people and their families each year.
