Penticton, BC September 4, 2014 – Join us Wednesday, September 10 for the Third Annual South Okanagan United Way Drive-Thru Breakfast at the Lakeside Resort.
Starting at 6:30am the Penticton Lakeside Resort main entrance will again transform into a drive-thru experience like no other to officially kickoff the 2014 United Way Campaign! Over 850 breakfast bags, sponsored by Valley First Credit Union, will be delivered by volunteers to drive-thru guests, in exchange for donations in support of the local United Way.
The United Way’s mission is to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on vulnerable children, adults, and seniors. These are the building blocks for a good life – quality support for children leads to confident adults; help for vulnerable adults and families makes your community stable; and healthy seniors are happy, more independent and enjoy a better quality of life.
Their goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place.
“Lake City Casinos has been a valued partner of the United Way in the South Okanagan for a few years and we are proud to be their chosen charity.” Remarks Shelley Gilmore, Executive Director of the United Way Central & South Okanagan/Similkameen. “We are always so encouraged to see the level of engagement with local employers to enact change in their communities. Lake City’s commitment to the collective action that is the United Way is an example of true leadership. They have increased their commitment significantly this year and for that we are so very thankful. Their commitment to the community through this generosity will make a marked difference in the lives of so many individuals and families in the South Okanagan.”
Lake City Casino will be donating a total of $3,462.89 to the campaign at the Breakfast. Since 2007, they have given over 12 thousand dollars to this amazing and vital organization.
Lake City Casino Staff will be on hand to help hand out breakfast, provide prizes and coupons, and assist the United Way in launching their campaign.
We hope to see you there!
