On behalf of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, I would like to pass on huge thanks to the community and visitors to Oliver and the surrounding area for helping make our Moonlight Movie Night last Wednesday a great success.

We counted approximately 200 people in attendance and raised almost $1,500.

Special thanks to Tyler, Rob, Conrad and the rest of the staff at Oliver Buy-Low, and to the Penticton Wholesale Club who donated our barbecue food, concession items and drinks.

Thank you to Carol and her team at Oliver Parks and Recreation for helping with promotion and for providing us with an awesome venue and supplies for this event.

Thank you to Lisa and her team at Oliver Interior Savings Credit Union for not only sponsoring us, but making and selling 170 bags of popcorn for us. It was a hot item and once again they sold out.

Thanks to Alysha Williams from SUN FM who came out to be our emcee for the evening.

Also, a big thank you to all of the staff and volunteers from the Oliver and Penticton Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs who came out on a Wednesday evening to help out.

We really could not have pulled this event off without all of the support from the above-mentioned people, and I am ever so grateful.

Laurene Sloboda, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs
