The 100 Heroes Who Give A Damn in Kelowna are back.
An event on Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. at the Kelowna Toyota dealership at 1624 Cary Road will mark the fifteenth 100 Heroes event in Kelowna and the first since the onset of the pandemic.
The group has raised over $250,000 to date for local charities and non-profits.
In under one hour, the group will hear a five-minute pitch from three local groups and then vote to decide which group will take home the donations.
Both the members in attendance and those who can’t make it each commit to donating $100 to the chosen charity – and do so twice a year. To participate, members must attend two events annually, and commit to donating at each event to local philanthropic initiatives.
The group has previously raised funds for local organizations such as Connect Counselling & Therapy Society, The Child Advocacy Centre, The Elizabeth Fry Society, Karis Support Society and the KGH Foundation. Three different charities have been randomly selected to present at the next event, and to share with the 100 Heroes members the work they do in the Kelowna community.
