Gallaghers Ladies donate

Thanks to the Gallaghers Ladies the Kelowna Women’s Shelter received a $25,450.00 donation to support it's work helping women and children who have experienced domestic violence.

“Over the past 7 years the Gallaghers Ladies Club has hosted a Pro Am golf tournament in support of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.  Due to the generosity of the members, cash sponsors and gift in kind sponsors within our community and Kelowna in general we have raised over $115,000.00 for this worthwhile cause over the years” says tournament chairperson Fran Pirie. “We feel strongly that the women and children that are receiving the necessary care at the shelter are fully deserving of a better life. We are passionate about this charity and are grateful that we are able to contribute in a small way and make this our charity of choice.”

“I can’t express how grateful we are to everyone who organizes and supports the Gallagher’s Ladies’ Pro Am Golf Tournament,” says executive director Karen Mason. “Year after year they step up to create an amazing event that raises such needed funds for the work we do supporting women and children in need, and it really means a lot.”

The Kelowna Women’s Shelter has offered a safe haven and variety of support programs for women and children impacted by family violence and abuse since 1980.
