United Way Community Champions gather to celebrate 2019 campaign

On June 24, 2019, we held our Central Okanagan Community Appreciation Celebration. The room was filled with community champions including donors, community leaders, workplace campaign and corporate partners, media partners, volunteers and other key stakeholders in the 2018/2019 United Way campaign.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Community Distinction Award to Maxine DeHart for 20 years of support with the Drive Thru. This prestigious award is selectively given to a deserving community champion for extraordinary support of the United Way campaign. No one has provided more extraordinary support than Maxine DeHart!
