Kelowna’s Knox Mountain Motorsports Club presents the SPCA with a helping hand

One of the longest running events in Kelowna is also known for its generosity.

The SPCA received a $1,000 donation while $1,500 went to the Sunshine Division Operation Dreamlift.

The club is a non-profit organization, and focuses on donating profits to local charitable organizations.

The 61st Annual Knox Mountain Hill Climb is set for May 19 and 20, 2018.
