It was a heavy decision, back in March of this year, that the annual BOYD Father’s Day Charity Car Show would not be taking place for 2020. COVID changed everything for everyone. But, with challenge and chaos also comes opportunity and tends to bring out the best in people.
We are so fortunate to have such a strong connection with our community here in Kelowna & the Okanagan Valley, both on a personal / family level and our business partners too. Through the generous support of numerous key sponsors, vendors and attending display car owners, BOYD Autobody & Glass was able to generate a donation to the Kelowna Children’s Advocacy Centre of $11,050.
This was a combination of direct cash and retained sponsorship from organizations like Lordco, PPG, Enterprise Car Rentals, Westjet, Doak Shirreff, MJ Custom T’s, Area 27 and KMS Tools to name a few. Though we at BOYD were humble in our offering, Ginny Becker, Executive Director for the Children’s Advocacy Centre enlightened us, that in today’s current situation, every dollar carries the equivalent of $3 and goes directly to benefiting those needing to utilize the services of the CAC.
Thank you Kelowna. Thank you to the whole Okanagan Valley and beyond, for almost 20 years of ongoing support and love. Though somber and surreal, as we head into Father’s Day weekend without the hustle, organizing, volunteers and attendees heading for Kelowna’s City Park on Sunday. But, remember, opportunity shines through. Look for us to return in 2021, with some great new surprises, bigger & better displays, old favourites, families, friends – all to celebrate together.
Happy Father’s Day from all of us at BOYD Autobody & Glass
