KELOWNA - On July 22, the baseball stands were filled with fans and families who enjoyed a hard-fought game in support of the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign.

The Kelowna Falcons organization generously donated over $7,000 through gate sales, a 50/50 draw and game sponsorship opportunities to ensure the YMCA remains accessible to all, regardless of a family’s financial circumstance.

The YMCA would like to thank the Nonis family, TELUS and Capri Insurance, Y Kids Zone volunteers and the hundreds of baseball fans who attended and supported the event.

The YMCA of Okanagan is a local charity reliant on the generous support of donors to provide programs and services to children, youth, seniors and families from our community. In 2015, the YMCA of Okanagan was able to provide over $479,000 in financial sponsorship because of donations to the Y’s Strong Kids Campaign.
