Fundraiser planned for Elevation Outdoors

Harvest Golf Club to host gala banquet Friday, Oct. 23, in support of programs for underprivileged youth.

The annual fundraiser ‘Reaonfor the Seasons” in support of Elevation Outdoors will take place Friday, Oct.23,  at the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna.

Elevation Outdoors mission is to enhance the lives of underprivileged youth by teaching them outdoor sports and pursuits, and drawing parallels to life through the experience; and to help youth develop passion for snowboarding, sailing and mountain biking, and develop life skills along the way.

In its 9th year of operation, Elevation Outdoors programs are offered to eligible young people free of charge as we believe that no young person should be denied the potential to discover an outdoor pursuit that can keep them motivated, healthy, and stoked on life for the rest of their days.

“This is our largest fundraiser of the year and is key in raising the necessary funds for our programs,” said Tori Hanson, founder of Elevation Outdoors. “We have been able to expand our program this year and now offer sailing, mountain biking and skiing/snowboarding, allowing us to offer something for our youth year round.”

Tickets to the event are $75 and include a three course dinner, glass of wine from Squeezed Wines, dancing with DJ Haymaker, live auction, silent auction and raffle. Tickets can be purchased by email through info@impactevents.ca  or by phone at 250-826-1148.

“The Elevation Outdoors Gala Fundraiser promises to be an evening of fabulous food and wine, attractive auction items and groovy entertainment,” added Hanson. “With all proceeds going to support Elevation Outdoors youth programs.”
