The Sunshine DreamLift from Kelowna is getting ready to launch in December 2015, thanks to a new partnership between The Sunshine Foundation of Canada and Papa John’s Pizza.

April 29  will mark the first Papa John’s Pizza Dreams for Kids Day.

Participating Papa John’s Pizza locations in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Kamloops, and Prince George will donate 100 per cent of the proceeds and staff wages to Sunshine’s Individual Dreams and Sunshine DreamLift programs.

“We are excited to start this new partnership with Papa John’s Pizza which will ensure that we continue to fulfill Individual Dreams for kids and launch the Sunshine DreamLift from Kelowna in December – Sunshine’s 60th DreamLift,” said Nancy Sutherland, CEO of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. “Sunshine and Papa John’s are a perfect fit with shared values of delivering a unique and personal experience and recognizing that people and kids are at the heart of what we do.”

“Our Team at Papa John’s looks forward to ensuring that children in the Okanagan continue to have their Sunshine Dreams come true,” says Geoff Linquist, owner of the Kelowna and West Kelowna Papa John’s locations. “I have participated in previous Sunshine DreamLifts and know this is such a special program with so much community support. Papa John’s just had to do whatever we could to keep it going.”

The partnership between Papa John’s Pizza and Sunshine kicks off with the DreamCookie, on sale now at participating locations – Kelowna, West Kelowna, Kamloops and Prince George – and continues with Papa John’s Pizza Dreams for Kids Day on April 29th. One dollar from the sale of each DreamCookie will go towards Sunshine Dreams.
