Key to the SOEC unlocks free concerts and events for a year

Winner will get two tickets to every ticketed event at the South Okanagan Events Centre for a year

Darcia Harcott was an even more popular person this past year.

A side effect of what happens when you win two tickets to every event held at the South Okanagan Events Centre for the year. She wrapped up her whirlwind 12-months as the winner of the Key to the SOEC contest by attending The Offspring and Sublime with Rome concert on July 8.

“It was unbelievable,” said Harcott. “I had just as much fun giving away tickets to friends and family as I did attending the events. I was happy to share.”
