KELOWNA - The United Way Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen (United Way CSO) hosted over 800 baseball fans at Elks Stadium on Wednesday night when the Kelowna Falcons took on the Gresham Greywolves.

It was a night filled with Papa John’s pizza, a UBC Okanagan Heat “Kids Zone”, a performance by Okanagan Firestorm Cheerleading and a 50/50 draw: all in support of children and families in our community.

The Falcons played a hard fought game but eventually fell 3-2 to the Greywolves. More info can be found at the Kelowna Falcons website.
