Oct 25, 2013 / 5:00 am
In celebration of 'Community Living Month,' the Kelowna Community Development Society is hosting 'Dine for Diversabilities.'
The society's newest fundraiser will be held this coming Tuesday, Oct 29.
Anyone wishing to participate can simply go out for a meal at a participating restaurant on that day and the restaurant will make a donation to support adults with diversabilities in the community.
Here are the participating restaurants:
- The Grateful Fed 509 Bernard Ave.
- Rose's Waterfront Pub 1352 Water St.
- Bai Tong Thai Food Restaurant 275 Bernard Ave.
- Memphis Blues, 289 Bernard St.
"We're grateful to the restaurants who have signed up to participate in this event," says KCDS president, Ken Gauthier.
"It demonstrates their commitment to being great corporate citizens who really care about our community. We hope people will go out and enjoy a meal on Oct 29 to celebrate Community Living Month and the many ways in which adults with diversabilities contribute to, and are an important part of our community."
This event allows all members of the community to participate in supporting the social, recreational, and educational needs of adults and seniors in our community who have diversabilities, simply by going out to enjoy a meal.
Gauthier says funds raised stay in the community to provide enhanced programs and services that improve the quality of people's lives.
