Kelowna – RCMP Auxiliary Constable Program raises $8,401 through the “Stomp in the Mission” and gives to local charity.
On Friday, Sept. 5 the Kelowna Auxiliary Constable Program hosted a local event called the “Stomp in the Mission” that included a dance and silent auction, where all funds raised were given to the Pathways Abilities Society.
Pathways Abilities Society is a not for profit organization that focuses on helping those with diverse abilities and help them obtain life skills necessary to lead more independent self-sufficient lives. They do this by education, information and engagement.
“We chose to partner with the Pathways Abilities Society because we have a family member of the RCMP that uses this organization, but most importantly, we wanted to raise awareness what Pathways is and what they do for the community of Kelowna. The event was a huge success and would not have been possible without the support of local sponsors," Auxiliary Cst. Daryl Hazel says.
A special thank you goes out to the local band High Brown Boots band for providing great music and entertainment for the evening.
The Auxiliary program is thanking all the sponsors and attendees for their support. For more information on Pathways go to http://www.pathwayskelowna.ca/.
