A toast to Tom Budd

Kelowna philanthropist Tom Budd is being recognized for his leadership role on mental health.

Budd will receive the District 21 Toastmasters Communication & Leadership Award April 20 during the organization's spring conference at the Capri Hotel.

Formerly one of Canada's top investment bankers, Budd has supported numerous charitable endeavours around the Central Okanagan. 

But, for the past three years, he has lived with personal tragedy, following the death of both of his sons to suicide. 

Since then, he has become an outspoken advocate for mental health issues, and partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association to promote the Ride Don’t Hide event on June 24.

Toastmasters from across Southern B.C. and Vancouver Island will gather at the conference.
