Dining out in Kelowna can help those without a home

Enjoy a lovely repast at a Kelowna restaurant knowing proceeds got to Inn from the Cold.

The Dining Out to End Homelessness dinner series is a creative culinary approach to support those experiencing homelessness in Kelowna—and it is as easy as going out for dinner.

“For these fundraisers we’ve partnered with local restaurants who want to give back to the community” explained Tara Tschritter, coordinator of local charity Inn from the Cold—Kelowna.

Proceeds from all Dining Out to End Homelessness events provide much needed financial assistance to the running of emergency winter shelter.

This season’s first dinner is hosted Monday, Oct. 20, 6 p.m., by Olympia Greek Taverna in Rutland.

For foodies and humanitarians alike, this event promises the delicious and authentic dining experience Olympia Greek Taverna is known for, paired with a positive social impact, as proceeds go directly to help our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Tickets are $30 and include dinner (gratuities included). There will also be a 50/50 draw.

Tickets are available online at eventbrite.ca (just search ‘Dining Out to End Homelessness’), or at the IFTC office, 1829 Chandler St.

Inn from the Cold—Kelowna is a volunteer-based registered charity operating a 35- bed winter shelter and five year-round programs, Inn Home Support, for persons recently housed or at risk for homelessness, outreach and case management as well as a social capacity building Homeless Street Soccer Program, the Kelowna Kodiaks.

During the winter months, the charity operates a low barrier co-ed shelter.
