The Kelowna Falcons will host the ‘Falcons Play for United Way’ night this coming Wednesday, July 8, at Elks Stadium, when they take on Klamath Falls at 6:35 p.m.m with a Black Match Pyrotechnics fireworks display sponsored by The Jane Hoffman Group to follow the game.

The event will see ticket sales and sponsorship money go towards the United Way of the Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen community fund and 2015 campaign.

“This year we’re looking for new and exciting ways to engage the community and we’re so excited to have the opportunity to partner with the Kelowna Falcons,” said Shelley Gilmore, executive director of UW CSO. “This is another way to raise awareness and dollars to support kids, youth, families and seniors in our community”.

In addition to an exciting baseball game and fireworks display, there will be a Kid Zone which includes bouncy castles, tattoo booths, and other games sponsored by The Dollar Store with More.

Thanks to Papa John’s Kelowna, there will be pizza by the slice available with proceeds going towards the community.

And to top it all off there will be opportunities to win great prizes including a chance to win a Harley Davidson Sportster in a raffle draw supporting United Way.

Ticket sales will be held throughout the community and can be purchased online at  falconsplayforunitedway.eventbrite.ca or at the gate prior to the opening pitch.
