The BCHF was surprised by a cheque presentation at the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) AGM & Tourism Summit held last month at Kelowna’s Manteo Resort.
The $4600 donation represented 50% of the net profits from TOTA’s 24th annual golf tournament, held in August at Talking Rock Golf Course, Chase BC. The cheque was presented by TOTA president and CEO Glenn Mandziuk to Heather Schroeter, BCHF board member and general manager at Manteo.
The AGM was also an opportunity to re-present the TOTA-sponsored hospitality scholarship certificate to Maik Uhlmann of Okanagan College. Maik originally received his certificate, along with a $1500 scholarship, in October at the CONNECT Show’s annual Trends Breakfast.
The Foundation is grateful for the support of such progressive organizations as TOTA, who continue to work with us to help our own.
