Angel Award

Angel Award

The Okanagan has a very special night coming up, taking place on June 25.  Not only is it a night of incredible musical entertainment and a display of talent from across the Okanagan and the rest of the province of British Columbia, but the Angel Award is a fundraiser that benefits children living with arthritis.  Proceeds raised are donated to The Arthritis Society, BC & Yukon Division, where we are able to help make a difference in the lives of those living with this complex disease.

A small gesture can make a big difference. We can erase the pain of arthritis together and help millions of people in the process.
