The annual Pentown Throwdown, which took place at PeachFest, has raised record funds for the YES Project in Penticton.
“It was better than ever, better than last year,” said organizer Ryan Wuthe, from Boyd Autobody and Glass.
The event saw skateboarders and BMX riders competing at the Riverside Skatepark, all vying for cash prizes, while supporting the YES Project.
Wuthe said their decision to donate proceeds to the YES Project was based on the community’s needs.
“We looked around at the needs, and decided this was the best place,” Wuthe said.
The event raised $2,200 for the youth centre, which will be operated by the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan-Similkameen.
