June 20 2009 we were invited to take video for YouTube of the Kelowna Yacht Club – ‘Boat for Hope Charity’ event.
The purpose of this event is to help bring a smile to the face of children with disabilities while also recognizing that siblings, parents and caregivers also need recognition and support. Organization for this event starts almost one year in advance; coordinating an event of this size with inherent difficulties is challenging but the Kelowna Yacht Club, its members, volunteers, supporting organization, charities and sponsors did a fantastic job.
Boat owners were down at the Kelowna Yacht Club as early as 6am to prepare the pirate theme of their boats. Entertainers, volunteers gave up their Saturday to make sure everything was attended to. There was a BBQ held for the families and children, hot dogs, smokies, pop and juice, fruit and ice cream and everything was donated by very generous sponsors all FREE. Musical performances, comedy, games – It was FANTASTIC. – THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TO DO THINGS RIGHT! ARRRR to the Kelowna Yacht Club and Sponsors and Volunteers of this amazing event!
