Celebrity Tennis Classic

All proceeds dedicated to essential, life-saving
cardiac diagnostic equipment at the Kelowna General Hospital.

The Celebrity Tennis Classic & Bocce Ball Tournament has been raising funds for Cardiac Care at the Kelowna General Hospital for eleven years. Hosted by Walley and Marietta Lightbody, the event is a fun-filled weekend of tennis for all levels of players (or bocce ball for those less coordinated) and a fantastic fundraising dinner. Okanagan Life is a proud supporter.

To date, supporters of the event have contributed over $600,000 for Cardiology. Life-saving medical equipment including pediatric cardiac/respiratory monitors, defibrillators, pacemakers, bedside monitors and cardiac ultrasounds has been purchased from previous years’ proceeds.
