The success of the 5th Annual BC Interior RV Show has allowed the BCIRV Society directors to donate $5

BC Interior RV show gives back to Penticton

The society donated $5,000 to The Salvation Army and the Penticton & District Community Resource Society (PDCRS).

The fifth annual BC Interior RV Show had another successful year and because of the community support the BCIRV Society directors were thrilled to donate back to Penticton.

The society donated $5,000 to The Salvation Army and the Penticton & District Community Resource Society (PDCRS). This donation amount also includes a new $1,000 scholarship for a South Okanagan resident to register for the RV Service Technician Program at Okanagan College. These funds compliment the 1,200-plus pounds of food that was collected for the Salvation Army Community Food Bank during the April 2016 three-day event.

It is an honour that the BC Interior RV Society has been such a success over the past five years that we are in a position to give back to our community,” said society chair Al Mullins. “With the addition of a $1,000 scholarship to the Okanagan College RV Service Technician Program, it sends a message that this is an industry that is sustainable and sees continued growth.”

The sixth BC interior RV Show will take place April 21 to 23, 2017 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre and the South Okanagan Events Centre.
