Super fundraisers

KGH Foundation benefits from community donations When a seemingly healthy employee was suddenly struck by critical illness, a tight knit local business group was motivated to start a fundraising campaign. As a result, Gord Hayes, general manager of Kelowna’s Johnston Auto Group BMW, recently presented a gift of $15,000 to the KGH Foundation.

Author of Made in British Columbia A Q&A with Laurie Carter You’ve written many works during your illustrious academic career; why this book now?  I had written the cultural history of Canada over 20 years ago; now it was time to focus on British Columbia. How did you select the eight people to profile? There were so many I could have chosen: writers like Earle Birney and Roderick Haig Brown. I chose eight people whose reputations will last and who made an impact on their contemporaries. They were also very different people: some came to prominence, like Martin Grainger,...
