2nd Annual Toy Run Supports SOWINS

Posted by admin on August 21, 2017

The Penticton Legion Branch #40 2nd Annual Toy Run held on July 22, 2017 benefiting SOWINS donated-toys-for-Penticton-Legion-toy-run.JPGwas a great success!!!

The special event raised approximately $3,000.00 and collected 320 gift items.  This will put a smile on so many children's faces this Christmas and bring joy to local families.

I would like to thank the following as without the participation of everyone this event would of not been possible nor successful:

  • The Events Committee
  • The 35+ Volunteers
  • The participating Legions
  • The 70+ Sponsors who so graciously supported the event (see list below)
  • All the Riders, including BTW members from Princeton area and those who came from as far away as Alberta.

Special thanks goes out to the West Kelowna & Summerland RCMP Detachments for providing traffic control at Peachland & Summerland – it was truly appreciated by all the riders.money-raised-for-Penticton-Legion-toy-run-supporting-SOWINS.JPG

Again, thank you for supporting the South Okanagan Women in Need Society and the Legions and I know that this day will be remembered by all!
