Legions are community caring organisations and because of this Oliver, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls are joining together for an important event. They are holding a benefit for the family of Cody O’Conner, who were left with nothing after a fire wiped out all their belongings and took the life of little Cody. This event is taking place on Saturday, October 19 at the Okanagan Falls Legion from noon until 9 p.m. or longer.

The funds from this benefit will all be going to the O’Conner family, who really need all the help they can get at this sad time. Family members and various fire service representatives will be attending, including Fire Chief Dan Skaros who bravely rescued little Cody. Other local figures will be on hand throughout the  event.  Day long entertainment is being co-ordinated by Damon and Terri Bremner of Penticton, and all the bands and entertainers from all over the valley will be donating their time and talents to this cause.  More information on the artists and their schedule will be advertised nearer the date.

Food will be ongoing, made available by the Legion Ladies Auxilliaries of Oliver, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls, and all three Legions will be volunteering to help in every way. In addition, all these Legions will be accepting any donations for help for the family.

 

Please make a note of the date, Saturday, October 19 from noon to 9 p.m., so that you can support a very needy cause.
