Donations for wine tastings

Wine tasting at Da Silva Vineyards and Winery will have a philanthropic overtone this month. 

The winery will be accepting donations for the Youth Centre at the Foundry Penticton in lieu of tasting fees. 

"Richard and I proud to support an organization in our community that helps teens and young adults succeed. Having a place where youth can find the care and support they need all under one roof is definitely worth our support!” said Twylla Da Silva, president of the vineyard and winery. 

Aaron McRann, executive director of the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan-Similkameen, said support of local businesses like Da Silva has been key to the success of their fundraising efforts for the Youth Centre. 

"Over the last year there have been more than 150 businesses and individuals who have stepped up to help build a safe place for youth in our community," McRann said. 

The Youth Centre is now only $135,000 away from their fundraising goal of $1.2 million for renovations to the main floor of their Main Street location. 

“I am truly in awe from the support we have received from the community for the Youth Centre. It is from people like Twylla and Richard Da Silva that we are so close to our goal. With their support, youth and families will have a one-stop-shop of integrated youth services and resources in Penticton. One of the most important aspects of our fundraising campaign is it shows youth that people care," said Amberlee Erdmann, YES Project coordinator.
