|Over 100 riders gathered together on Sunday June 3rd for the 11th Annual Bike & Braai! Cyclists cruised around the beautiful South East Kelowna area, tasted some sweet wine and enjoyed a delicious BBQ – all to help raise funds for JoeAnna’s House, a short-term housing facility to keep families together when they need it most.
The KGH Foundation is so appreciative of all the support from the medical community, KGH staff, sponsors and volunteers! Together, we raised over $30,000 to help build this home-away-from-home for those families traveling to KGH for care! JoeAnna’s House will be created to have an atmosphere that will make families and children, as well as adults feel welcomed, at ease and able to care for their loved ones. Thank-you for your support!
A huge thanks to the committee – Mark Yudin, Betty Yao, Gord Fawcett and Julie Fiorentino in ensuring the success of the event. Special thanks to TD as the title sponsor, Johnny Vesterinen for entertaining the crowd with his incredible tunes, the volunteers for their dedication and commitment and to Ryan & Miriam Foster for allowing us to use their beautiful property. Most importantly, THANK YOU for coming out and supporting the event.
We hope to see you again next year!
