With one short connection, flying from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) to Europe is easy and convenient — and YLW wants to show how easy it is.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., the public is invited to attend YLW's annual European travel event.

Air Canada and Lufthansa Airlines, Transat Holidays, Air Canada Vacations, travel agencies and tour operators all promoting European travel destinations and experiences will have information booths on display in the airport terminal.

Those who attend can learn about flight specials, Mediterranean cruises, accommodation options and bicycle tours through Europe. Slide presentations will also be held in the airport boardroom.

If that's not enough reason to attend, YLW and Air Canada will give away a flight for two to London, England, as well as other door prizes including a $500 travel voucher with Transat Holidays and a $200 travel voucher from Air Canada Vacations.

To enter for a chance to win your European holiday, entry forms will be available. Purchase one for $5, 3 for $10 and 6 for $20. YLW is also accepting donations of used eyewear - one entry form for up to five pairs of glasses, two chances to win for more than six pairs of used eyewear. All money from this draw and the donated eyeglasses will be provided to this event's charity: Catherine Goheen's The Gift of Vision.

Goheen, founder and owner of Dr. Specs Optical in Kelowna and Penticton, has donated her time and passion to dispense used eyeglasses and frames to those in need in developing countries - 18 eye glass missions so far.

You can read Catherine's story here and how you can help.

The draw for the prizes will take place at 3 p.m. near the end of the event. Those who have entered do not need to be present at the time of the draw to be eligible.

Parking in the long-term lot is free for those attending the European destinations event. To qualify for free parking, parking vouchers must be validated at the event.
