Wendy’s Dreamlift Day
…The Okanagan again rallied around the cause of sending children with physical challenges and life-threatening illnesses to Disneyland for a day by supporting the annual Wendy’s DreamLift Day fundraiser, generating $109,382.45 for this 17th annual event. Wendy’s staff at franchise restaurants in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Penticton, Salmon Arm and Kamloops donated their wages and time in support of the fundraiser, while local dignitaries such as Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan (above) helped out behind and in front of the counter. Several members of the Orange Country Sheriff’s Department were also on hand to help out, as the department partners with the Sunshine Foundation, the recipient of the DreamLift Day fundraiser proceeds, to help organize the DreamLift Day flight every two years for B.C. Interior kids. The next flight is scheduled for Dec. 8, 2011.
