Recently relocating from Prince George, the pizza outlet is owned and operated by two sisters, Navreet Sandhu and Navroop Dhillon. Along with the regular pizza creations, the gals are now including authentic Indian flair to the pizzas, including paneer, tandoori chicken and butter chicken pizzas. There is also a good selection of many other pizzas, including Italian authentic artisan styles, chicken creations, meat lovers, vegetarian delights, Tasty’s Toothsome or one of two intense pizzas, which offers hot and spicy or hot Mexican. You can also create your own pizza or try their homemade lasagna, cheesy sticks, calzone, Greek salad or chicken wings. We tasted the butter chicken and Hawaiian pizza that comes with bacon, both with the regular soft crust and they were delicious. Tasty 2 for 1 offers pick-up, Skip the Dishes or Doordash. Open Tuesday to Saturday. Call 250-717-5772 or visit www.tasty2for1pizza.com.

This past year, RE/MAX Kelowna has donated more than $35,000 to the food bank, which translates in about $100,000 worth of grocery buying purchasing power. The foundation also donated $5,000 to support the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign. Jerry Redman and Peter Kirk are the owner/managing directors of RE/MAX Kelowna.
Mary Miller, who passed away in October at the age of 83, was the type of nurse who, when the phone rang, would help her colleagues in the middle of the night. In celebration of all the love she gave her patients and especially those closest to her, the Miller family has made a $150,000 donation to the Okanagan College’s new Health Sciences Centre. Dean Miller, her husband of 62 years and co-founder of Miller & Wyatt, a local auto parts store, was pleased and honoured to do this for Mary, along with sons Bruce and Brian, and daughter Kathy Hattrick. The gift will support the student collaboration room, a shared study and technology space primarily, but will also support a care bed unit and another student gathering and study lounge.
