Sun scholarship fund grows

The Okanagan Sun's scholarship fund has grown significantly.

The Sun announced this week the team, in partnership with Scotiabank, has made a $10,000 contribution toward player scholarships.

The club raised $5,000 through its annual Sunfest fundraiser. Scotiabank matched that amount.

“The Okanagan Sun are proud to be able to offer our athletes the opportunity to further their studies at Kelowna’s post-secondary institutions,” said Sun president Les Weiss.

“This wouldn’t be possible without the continued contributions from the team at Scotiabank, along with the year-in, year-out support from our fans and community partners.”

Since its establishment in 2011, the scholarship fund has helped more than 100 former players continue their education off the football field.
