Great story from Rotary Club of Peachland!
JoeAnna's House ( is an initiative by the Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) Foundation and a  couple of major private donors. The Foundation has approached Rotary clubs in the area to come on board with donations. Of particular importance was that a donation be received by May 31st because a private foundation pledged to match donations received by that date 1:1. 
Read the latest updates from DG Sherry Chamberlain (a proposal) and the KGH Foundation (Impact Report).
Being People of Action, our club quickly got going on this and raised $2,617 from individual members. That sum was boosted by club funds of $6,000. 
On Thursday, Peggy Southin, our President, and I presented a cheque for $8,617 to the KGH Foundation. This amount was matched 1:1 by the private foundation bringing our contribution to this worthwhile project to $17,324.  We are off to a great start! 
As of September 28, BC Clubs Supporting JoeAnna’s House have received gifts/commitments totaling over $40,000.  Thank you to those of you who have already supported this project.
