KELOWNA - The Missionwood Retirement Resort recently held their annual Gift of Giving Luncheon for their residents, guests and members of the community with 100 per cent of the proceeds being donated to the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign.

“Executive Chef David Harris and his culinary team provided a traditional holiday meal with all the trimmings to 317 people,” said Bettyann Gardner, Missionwood Marketing Director. “Knowing the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign is dedicated to supporting local kids and families in need is a cause we cherish at Regency Resorts.”

Since 2014, Missionwood Retirement Resort has donated over $12,000 to the Y’s Strong Kids Campaign.

Over 20,000 children and youth participate annually in YMCA child care, camp, youth leadership and health programs. 1 in 5 of these children are able to participate because of the generosity of donors.
