Get your paddle on!

On Sunday, August 12, we'll be making waves at Rotary Beach with our fourth annual PIHL Law Paddle for Prevention. Over 150 paddle boarders will participate as teams of four in relay races, and for many it will be the first time they have ever set foot on a paddle board.

This is a fun, high energy event made possible by many sponsors and volunteers. Corporate teams find it a great opportunity to do some team building, while community teams of family/friends come out to spend time on beautiful Okanagan Lake. Of course, there's a little friendly competition as everyone races to win the coveted Gold Paddle!

Get your team together and join us for our biggest fun(d)-raising event of the year in support of brain injury prevention and education in the Okanagan. We guarantee it will be one of the highlights of your summer.

To inquire about registering a Corporate Team (as a Bronze Sponsor) please contact Magda Kapp via phone at 250-762-3233 ext. 109 or by email.

Together for Starbright!

The weather held on Sunday for the volunteers from TD Bank Dilworth Centre! They spent the day painting a
patio area and assembling sheds to go into that area for Starbright Children’s Development Centre. The Board
Chair and Association President of Starbright, Carol Meise, worked the full day alongside the TD staff. One of the
donors of the sheds, Kara of Kara and Associates Personal Real Estate Corporation, stopped by to thank the TD
volunteers. Mohini Singh, City Counselor, also came to commend this hardy bunch for giving of their time and

The sheds will house therapeutic equipment and toys used by both the Physiotherapy department and the
Autism Program at Starbright. With space being so limited in the Starbright facility, storage of items has had to
move outside. From all of the staff at Starbright, a very large and heartfelt thank you goes out to the donors and

Billet families needed!

The Kelowna Rockets are currently accepting applications for billet families for the 2018-2019 hockey season.

Being a billet family is an incredibly rewarding experience. Billets become a second family to each player and are an integral part of helping them grow both on the ice and off the ice. Our players and billets create long and lasting relationships that often continue after their WHL playing days are over.

If you live in the Kelowna Secondary School catchment (Glenmore and North Glenmore, South East Kelowna, Crawford Estates or Casorso Road), or in the Black Mountain School catchment and are interested in opening your home to a Rockets player, you can become a Rockets billet family.

If you are interested in hosting a player for the upcoming season or want more information on becoming a billet family please contact Assistant Coach & Billet Coordinator Kris Mallette via email at [email protected]
