Hit the pool for a toonie
Jan 18, 2013 / 3:01 pm
The City of Penticton is inviting all residents to take part in a Toonie Family Swim Day on Sunday, Jan. 20 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Admission costs only $2 per person, and proceeds will be donated to the United Way South Okanagan Similkameen.
"We hope the entire community comes out Sunday and supports this great cause," said Penticton RCMP Insp. Brad Haugli, who is also the Co-Chair of the United Way's 2012 Campaign Cabinet. "Our community is filled with very active individuals, and each and every donation - no matter how big or small - will go a long way to promoting recreation among all families in the region."
Funds from the event will be directed to providing opportunities for local youth to participate in recreation activities who could not without assistance.
United Way supports vulnerable children, families and seniors in the community - individuals who need help most. When United Way helps others, our community is stronger.
The South Okanagan Similkameen organization consists of volunteers, with a small staff, that raise funds to support community in ways that impact lives in a real way.
