Celebrate the arrival of spring at the annual Blossom Time Fair

It’s spring and that means it’s time for the 59th annual Blossom Time Fair at Cottonwoods.

The annual Blossom Time Fair is organized by Kelowna General Hospital Auxiliary and the Cottonwoods, Peachland, Rutland and Winfield auxiliaries.

Funds raised from the fair go toward different projects each year that represent the auxiliaries’ shared mandate of working together for patient care and comforts in our community.

“Typically the fair raises between $10,000 and $12,000,” said fair committee convener Pat Westheuser of the KGH Auxiliary.

“This year the auxiliaries have earmarked the fundraising to benefit the May Bennett Wellness Centre.”

Past beneficiaries of the fair’s fundraising efforts include the rose garden and gazebo at Brookhaven, renovations to the hair salon at Cottonwoods Care Centre, and improvements to KGH’s pre-surgical waiting room.

The Blossom Time Fair features an ice cream parlour, bake sale, collectibles, face-painting, toys, books, plants and garden accessories. Take the opportunity to ask a master gardener for spring gardening tips or simply enjoy a barbequed burger.

Everyone is invited to come on down to the Blossom Time Fair in support of the auxiliaries on Friday, May 13, on the grounds of the Cottonwoods Care Centre, 2255 Ethel St.,  in Kelowna, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
