The Innkeeper’s Celebration will return this year to celebrate its 25th Anniversary on Thursday, December 4th.

Ted Callahan, President  & CEO of Argus Properties, explains “we wanted to keep the Eldorado traditions alive and maintain the philanthropic endeavours such as the ever popular Innkeeper’s Christmas Celebration with proceeds supporting KGH.”

Since its inception in 1989, the Innkeeper’s Celebration has contributed well over half a million dollars to improving the care patients in Kelowna receive. It has supported everyone from newborns in the Labour & Delivery Department, youth-at-risk in the Adolescent Psychiatric Unit, to end-of-life care at the Hospice House. The impact made from Innkeeper’s reaches far and has touched the lives of many in our community.

All proceeds from the silver anniversary event will go toward the Interior Heart & Surgical Centre (IHSC). The IHSC, opening next autumn, will be the home of twelve surgical specialties including cardiac, neurosurgery, orthopedic, plastic surgery and many more.

“This new expansion means continued enhancement of surgical advances for patients in life changing and saving moments”, explains Doug Rankmore, CEO of the KGH Foundation.  “Thanks to the continued support of the Hotel Eldorado, its generous partners and all of the Innkeeper’s guests, more success stories walk out of KGH’s doors each day.”

Thom Killingsworth, Regional Vice President of Argus says "there has been an overwhelming response from the community through food and beverage suppliers, decor companies and our colleagues who donate their time to make sure this great tradition lives on and every possible dollar goes to the KGH Foundation."

Continuing in the same format as previous years, the event will run from 7:00pm – 10:00pm at the Hotel Eldorado. Tickets are $200 each or if you buy 7, you get the 8th for free – a great opportunity to gather your friends or co-workers for a fun night out to kick off the season!

To purchase your tickets today, visit or call 250-862-4438. You can also make a night of it and add an overnight stay for only $99.

Great wine, great food, great cause and a great time.

The Kelowna General Hospital Foundation is an independent, volunteer-driven charitable organization committed to enhancing the delivery of healthcare to the patients of Kelowna General Hospital and its associated facilities.
