Kelowna, British Columbia — September 15, 2015 — The Boyd Autobody & Glass locations in Kelowna, BC, have made a major donation to the YMCA of Okanagan, thanks to proceeds from this year’s Father’s Day Car Show. The donation of $11,124 will go to benefit local children who are living in financial need within the community.
Boyd Autobody & Glass has been putting on the annual Father’s Day Car Shows for 17 consecutive years, and each year the company selects a charity to benefit from the fundraiser.
The funds will go to the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign. The program provides a place for kids to go after school with positive role models, access to education and other support systems. The need for donations to the program is great.
A statement from YMCA of Okanagan says one in five children enrolled at the YMCA rely on the financial subsidy provided by the Strong Kids Campaign.
“We are honoured to be supporting such an important cause,” says Methal Abougoush, Owner of Kelowna’s Boyd Autobody & Glass locations. “It is great to know that through the success of this family event, we are able to help create a better future for many kids here in the Okanagan.”
