October 8, 2020 (Penticton) – Local residents came out in droves for the 9th Annual South Okanagan Drive Thru at the Penticton Lakeside Resort on October 8 raising over $17,500.  In addition, IGA contributed another $1,900 and still counting as they collected donations all weekend from customers bringing the total to just under $20,000.

Due the pandemic, safety measures were in place and long lineups ensued but very patient Drive Thru guests proved to be just as generous as ever. With that and the incredible support of local sponsors, media, volunteers and the community, the event was a great success!
