BMO Shines in Kelowna
Since 1998, BMO Financial Group in Kelowna has contributed over $370,000 to support Sunshine Dream Programs through employee events, the BMO Okanagan Marathon, and the annual BMO Shred-a-thon.
On September 8th, 2016, the 8th Annual BMO Shred-a-thon invited Kelowna, BC residents and businesses to drop off paper documents for confidential shredding by Iron Mountain at the BMO Capri Centre Branch - turning old documents into new dreams come true. The event was a great success raising $5,846 in cash donations.
Sunshine was honoured to continue to be a key charity partner with the BMO Okanagan Marathon which took place over Thanksgiving weekend. BMO Financial Group and the Running Room invited runners and walkers to collect pledges to support Sunshine and other local charities.
The tremendous outpouring of support from the Kelowna community during these events was a bright star in our year. Thank you BMO, Running Room and Iron Mountain for being Dream Champions!
