100 Women Who Care

Some people in town simply make things happen. Rose Sexsmith is one of those people. Gifted with the ability to gather people behind a common vision you can easily see why she was the recipient of the Women of the Year at the recent City of Kelowna Civic Awards. You have all seen her name at some point as it glowed in neon outside of the her pub (that she co-owns) Roses Waterfront Pub. What you may not have seen is her time spend over the past 10 years working on a project called "100 Wise Women". She describes it originally as a get-together party with some friends that quickly turned philanthropic in nature raising funds for various charities over its 10 years in existence. 

So now she is launching a new project and its called 100 Women Who Care 

This graphic gives a quick idea of what its' all about but if you want more info check out my interview below or go to the website. And yes guys this one is only for women but if one of you want to start 100 Guys Who Care let me know.

For live music this weekend here is some info about the last show at Parks Alive! (Kelowna) and Music in the Park (West Kelowna):

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, and 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, and occasionally a 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.
