Dance to assist the food bank

Rock Your Stockings—an all ages fundraiser dance benefiting the Kelowna Community Food Bank, goes Dec. 4.

Rock Your Stockings—an all ages fundraiser dance, benefiting the Kelowna Community Food Bank—will take place Sunday, Dec, 4,  from 4 to 8 p.m.,  at The Habitat, 248 Leon Ave., in downtown Kelowna.

In the holiday spirit of giving and receiving, Rock Your Stockings creates an opportunity for Kelowna’s kids and their families to become involved in a social justice issue.

Through the event, participants experience that one is never too young or too old to make a positive difference in the lives of other, and that the process of doing so can be a good time.

All profits from this event are donated to the food bank helping to positively impact their mission to “assist in alleviating chronic hunger and poverty in the Central Okanagan.”

Every family is invited to come dance with us and be part of the solution. Tickets are $5 per person.

As well, in return for donations to the food bank’s  Christmas Hamper, guests will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a number of prizes generously donated by Kelowna businesses.

If a family is registered with the Kelowna Community Food Bank as a recipient of a 2011 Christmas hamper, they are invited to join this event free of charge.
