Whats On


There has been a lot of talk about anti-bullying in the past few years but I think one of the campaigns that has resonated the most in this community is the #iamME campaign spearheaded by Loyal Wooldridge. As he will tell you its more about an empowerment campaign than anything else. Loyal is the owner of Loyal Hair Therapy, a multiaward winning hair sallon, a business he started at an age far younger than most entrepreuners in town. After interviewing Kevin and Sonya I asked a lot of folks who I should interview next. A few people mentioned Loyal as he was not only an example of a successful business but he had also really focused his marketing about making a differance (kinda like those Dove campaigns). I sat down with him recently at Music City Studio to talk about his #iamME campaign, his recent engagement, and what's coming up down the road for him:
Capone's Underground Affair
There is a fabulous gangster themed event happening this July 18th that I also wanted to encourage you to check out. It truly looks like one of the unique events Kelowna has seen for a while.

About the Author


Ryan Donn
(singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, Councillor at the City of Kelowna). 

I love creating and connecting. For years I spent most of my time in Kelowna creating songs. Those songs have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, etc. 

I use this column to connect some of our local creatives, events, unique local projects/non-profits, or perhaps the random column about our city. 

Originally from Scotland I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years.  My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities). In 2014 I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
