In Kelowna there is a magnificent place for peace and healing, where cancer patients stay while undergoing radiation and other treatments.  It is the Rotary Lodge in Kelowna.  

A recent patient/resident posted a touching story of her experience there on a local Rotary website.  

She writes .....

To help celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Rotary Foundation,  two District 5060 Million Dollar Dinners were held,  Friday night, April 7 in Wenatchee, and Kelowna April 8.
