THOMPSON-OKANAGAN — Papa John's pizza outlets in Kelowna, West Kelowna and two in Kamloops have stepped up to revive the Sunshine Dreams for Kids program in the area after Wendy's outlets in the area pulled out earlier this year.

Papa John's will continue the tradition of donating all proceeds and staff wages for one day of sales—set for April 29, 2015—to Sunshine programs for the area and they are bringing Prince George into the fun, as well. 

The program was in jeopardy earlier this year when it was learned new owners of Wendy's restaurants decided not to continue with the program it was linked to for nearly 20 years.

Money raised goes to two programs. Dreamlift takes kids with extreme disabilities to a Disney theme park. A second program tries to make individual 'dreams' come true for kids.

The next DreamLift is set for December, 2015.
