The Boston Pizza restaurant locations in Kelowna will participate in the Inn from the Cold’s Dining Out to Help the Homeless dinner series.

On Monday, Nov. 21, 6 p.m., the Boston Pizza outlets on Dilworth and Harvey Avenues will provide customers with a starter salad and any of their delicious personal pizzas, plus coffee, tea or soft drink for $20 per person (including taxes and gratuities).

Half of that will go directly towards providing shelter, food and support services for those experiencing homelessness in Kelowna.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Boston Pizza,” said Tara Tschritter, coordinator at Inn from the Cold Kelowna.

“The funds raised by people dining out on just one night go a long way to help us provide warm beds, healthy meals and outreach services for our 35 guests.”

Information and tickets for the Boston Pizza dinner can be obtained at, or purchased at the Pitstop Husky on Gordon Drive.

Inn from the Cold Kelowna is a volunteer-based registered charity operating a low barrier co-ed 35-bed shelter to provide warm and safe refuge for both homeless men and women in Kelowna.
