Kelowna Falcons

Play For United Way

Have you got your tickets yet??

The United Way of the Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen have teamed up with Kelowna Falcons and UBC Okanagan for a charity ball game July 8, 2015. All the proceeds of the event dubbed “Falcons Play for United Way” will go to the United Way community fund and the 2015 campaign.

The Nonis family donated $1000 to the campaign and brought the charity ball game idea to the United Way. This unique partnership will enable the United Way to sell tickets and sponsorships for the game along with receiving the proceeds of the 50/50 draw.

“This year we’re looking for new and exciting ways to engage the community and we’re so excited that the Nonis family brought this opportunity to us”, says Shelley Gilmore, Executive Director of UW CSO. “This is another way to raise awareness and dollars to support kids, youth, families and seniors in our community”.

UBC is also involved in this event with several team members working on the plan and promotions.

“UBC is a long-time supporter of the United Way through our annual workplace campaign and this is a natural fit given the nature of the event”, says Rob Johnson, Director of Athletics and Recreation. “We are thrilled to be working with the Kelowna Falcons and United Way on this event!”

This family friendly game will see the Falcons vs. Klamath Falls and will also include a number of fun-filled attractions to entertain the crowd: a kid’s play area, fan participation events between innings and finally, a fireworks display to culminate the event.

Ticket sales will be held throughout the community or can be purchased online HERE. Call United Way CSO for more information: 250-860-2356 or email:
