KELOWNA - A recent charitable event challenged those with adventurous palates to a dinner featuring 30 kinds of exotic meats not commonly found in the local grocery store — and it was a success.
The event named Wild Game Night took place during Oktoberfest and proceeds will now go to the Kelowna's Gospel Mission to help support the dental clinic.
The Oktoberfest event was put together by John Peacock of Peacock Financial, Dr. Mike Ertel who is Chief of Staff at Kelowna General Hospital and Hans Birker, owner of the Bohemian Cafe and Catering Company. They put the event together with the mission in mind and will hand over a $5,000 cheque Dec. 4.
Wild Game Night took place at the Bohemian Cafe with a feast including 30 different wild game tapas including wild boar, ostrich and crocodile.
"It was such a special event to be able to be with so many people who care about the clinic and the food was incredible," Director of Services for the Gospel Mission Shirley Gobel said in a media release. "These funds will help finish paying off the dental clinic expansion."
