The photo shows David Gibbs, General Manager of the Prestige Hotel & Resorts, and Gail Harrison, Grant Coordinator for Cops For Kids Charitable Foundation. Both spoke to the club today about their support and the development of JoeAnna's House.   Every year, thousands of families from across the interior of British Columbia must travel from their homes in order for a loved one to receive life-saving specialist care at Kelowna General Hospital.  For many families wanting to maintain a presence at KGH for the period of their loved ones treatment, the lack of affordable short-term accommodation in Kelowna adds significantly to their hardshipResearch shows that patients heal better when surrounded by their loved ones.  They get better when together.

The KGH Foundation has committed to raising $8 million to build and operate JoeAnna’s House, a home-away-from-home to keep families together when they need it most.  There is more information about this project at https://www.kghfoundation.com/joeannas-house
