In September of 2019, BOYD Kelowna was nominated for 2 business excellence awards through the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce. Large Business of the year and Social Leadership were the two categories. From a fairly detailed submission, we were selected as finalists in both segments, which in itself was an honor. On November 1st, at the Gala to our great surprise and excitement we won the Social Leadership award!
This is a very honored, humbling and gracious recognition. Part of the guiding core among the owners, staff and long list of volunteers here at BOYD is leading the way for business to know, giving back to our community is vitally important. Not just in a monetary donation, but taking the initiative to raise public awareness for some great organizations that are focused on serving and benefiting the Okanagan – Cops for Kids, Child Advocacy Centre, The Kelowna SPCA, The United Way, Kelowna Family Y,Kelowna Burn Fund, Project Literacy – are but a few very worthy and deserving charities we are proud to align with and help.
Thank you to the Kelowna Chamber, the judges who came out to interview & inspect our facilities, all our fellow nominees and all the winners of business excellence from the Kelowna Chamber. Know that when you Bring it to BOYD, you in turn help us – #Boydgivesback.
The 2019 Father’s Day Charity Car Show in Kelowna’s City Park was a success on so many levels. From the great weather, to the record number of cars on display (over 600) to the massive attendance of over 38,000 spectators. We expanded the display areas, added a few new zones, had a larger selection of vendors for the Food Truck Alley. But the biggest win, would have to be the Raffle Car! A 2005 Mustang that was picked up by one lucky Kelowna resident for the cost of a $25 ticket. But that’s not the biggest win. Through the efforts of all our volunteers, the support of our event sponsors, the great registrants displaying their vehicles and the ticket sales for the raffle car, we were able to present the Child Advocacy Centre with a check for $53,529! This is the first time BOYD has made a multi-year commitment to a single cause, with 2020 aligned for the biggest achievement yet.
