The 5th Annual BC Interior RV Show had another successful year.

Because of the fantastic community support, the BCIRV Society directors were thrilled to donate $5,000 to The Salvation Army and the Penticton & District Community Resource Society (PDCRS). This donation amount also includes a new $1,000 Scholarship for a South Okanagan resident to register for the RV Service Technician Program at Okanagan College.

These well needed funds compliment the 1,200+ lbs of food that was collected for the Salvation Army Community Food Bank during the April 2016 three-day event!

“It is an honour that the BC Interior RV Society has been such a success over the past five years that we are in a position to give back to our community”, states Society Chair Al Mullins. “With the addition of a $1,000 scholarship to the Okanagan College RV Service Technician Program, it sends a message that this is an industry that is sustainable and sees continued growth.”
