Dreamlift raises nearly $100,000

by - Story: 52332

The 16th Annual Wendy’s DreamLift Day on Wednesday, January 27, raised $99,742.58.

All totalled over the last sixteen years, Wendy’s DreamLift Day has now raised an accumulative total of over $885,698.19.

The total includes the gross profits, wages and salaries from all the staff, management and ownership of the nine Wendy’s Restaurants in Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton.

The restaurants were assisted by volunteers from all walks of life. They added to the fun of the day by changing from their usual jobs in their communities to something very different: preparing burgers & salads, making fries, cleaning trays and tables and all sorts of other behind the scenes tasks that helped make the day such a great success.

A special thank you to the Orange County Sheriff’s who helped make this such a special day: Lieutenant Bill Griffin, Lieutenant Mark Levy, Lieutenant Mike Toledo, Commander Dave Wilson, Investigator Gene Inouye. In addition, Marilyn MacDougall, Executive Director, from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Advisory Council attended.
