“I’ve been inspired by my fellow councilors as I’ve seen them raise funds for great causes in our community. I’m excited to produce an entertaining night out at the Kelowna Community Theatre, raising funds for a great local charity filling a gap in our community,” said Donn.

The Bridge is raising funds to build a 16-bed, live-in treatment centre for youth aged 18 and under to heal and recover from addiction. There are fewer than 50 publicly funded treatment beds for youth in B.C. and none in the Interior for those under 17-years-old.

“They are helping us to change the story in the Okanagan for young people and their families struggling with addiction. A night of music that pays tribute to this community’s youth is a perfect way to celebrate them and to raise funds and awareness for the Youth Recovery House,” said Celine Thompson, executive director of The Bridge Youth & Family Services.
