Lights of Christmas Paws will help YMCA kids this Saturday

Kelowna local, Brad Pattison — who is known for his dog training expertise and his show on Slice TV — is hosting the light up of the year in Waterfront Park downtown called ‘Lights of Christmas Paws’.

This event is Pattison’s way of bringing a little pizazz to our downtown core while helping local charities and community members who would benefit from a helping hand this season.

On Saturday, December 19 partial proceeds will be donated to the YMCA of Okanagan helping low income children and families afford Y programs like preschool and after school care.

“The Y is doing great things in our community,” says Pattison. “I was lucky to have a chance to visit one of the Y’s child care locations recently and see firsthand how donor dollars are impacting kids’ lives. I intend to support the Y in more ways moving forward.”

Each year the Y provides hundreds of thousands of dollars to disadvantaged kids and families in the Okanagan giving them opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have. Currently one in five kids at the Y are only able to participate because of the financial support they are provided. This would not be possible without the generosity of our community.

Bring your families and furry friends down to experience Lights of Christmas Paws this Saturday between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. in support of the YMCA. Admission is $12 per adult and $7 for students and seniors. Kids under five years of age are free.
