First Of Its Kind Scavenger Hunt Supports Community Cause
The Race to I Do uncovers Kelowna’s wedding industry and gives back in a big way

Kelowna, BC - The Race to I Do is a first-of-its-kind scavenger hunt showcasing the businesses that bring the Okanagan's amazing wedding industry to life. Event creator, Sunney Engstrom, has partnered with Mamas for Mamas to create a fun, community-based event that benefits businesses and charity alike.

This unique event focuses on bringing attendees to ten local businesses located in Downtown Kelowna to increase visibility and raise awareness about the diverse and unique gems that can elevate anyone’s big day. Attendees will begin the hunt at Tourism Kelowna and solve clues to discover their groups unique route. The event will end with a reception and a silent auction at a secret location, with all event profits going to Mamas for Mamas.

Ms. Engstrom, on discussing the inspiration behind the event, credits her experience executing beautiful weddings throughout the Okanagan. “I knew I wanted to capitalize on my experience within the wedding industry when designing a charity event as party of my professional event studies.” Her deep love for the community made her tie together her passion for the wedding industry with an award-winning local charity that is dedicated to supporting women.

Kelowna hosts over 1400 weddings a year, and is among one of the region’s leading tourism industries. The Okanagan’s world-class wedding industry is upheld by all of the venues and businesses that work together in tandem to make these events amazing.

The Race to I Do takes place September 7, 2019 from 1:30pm - 5:30pm and begins at Tourism Kelowna.
