Hungry Games for good

Madison Erhardt

May the odds be ever in your favour at the Hungry Games 2.0. 

The obstacle course tested the best waiters and waitress in Kelowna on Tuesday – all for a good cause.

The fun-filled day was put on by The Industry Project at Central Sports Club.

T.I.P. is a Kelowna fundraising organization working to connect the restaurant industry with local charities.

So far, the organization has raised over $30,000 for Okanagan charities, including JoeAnna's House at Kelowna General Hospital.

The Hungry Games included a fun relay-style tray race among restaurants, with teams of 5-10 people, said co-ordinator Kaitelyn Dickie.

''As servers we already ‘tip out’ a portion of our daily sales to our support staff.... A commitment to T.I.P. means donating only one per cent of your sales each shift over two weeks in November to benefit a local charity.

"We want to involve servers from the community to ignite passion in their restaurants and to encourage their service team to be a part of the campaign,'' she added.
