Make next Wed­nes­day a pizza day

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN -

Papa John’s third an­nual Dreams for Kids Day will take place on Wed­nes­day.

All pro­ceeds from Papa John’s restau­rants in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Pen­tic­ton, Kam­loops and Prince Ge­orge will be do­nated to the Sun­shine Foun­da­tion of Canada for its Dream­lift to Dis­ney­land pro­gram.

The foun­da­tion sends a planeload of chil­dren with phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties or se­ri­ous ill­nesses to Dis­ney­land for a whirl­wind day of fun.

“The com­mu­nity sup­port we’ve re­ceived over the past two years of Dreams for Kids Day has been out­stand­ing,” said Ge­off Lin­quist, owner of Papa John’s in Kelowna and West Kelowna. “We’re look­ing for­ward to con­nect­ing with cus­tomers and friends at both the Kelowna and West Kelowna lo­ca­tions to make this Dreams for Kids Day the big­gest and best one yet.”

The 2016 Dreams for Kids Day raised more than $46,000 for the foun­da­tion.

“We could not do what we do with­out the sup­port of com­mu­nity part­ners like Ge­off and his team, and we are deeply moved by the spirit of all the Papa John’s em­ploy­ees and cus­tomers who opened their hearts to Sun­shine,” said Nancy Suther­land, CEO of the Sun­shine Foun­da­tion.

Papa John’s is lo­cated at 1959 Har­vey Ave. in Kelowna and at 2483 Main St. in West Kelowna.
