Peerless donation to SOWINS

Peerless donated $8,300 raised through their annual client appreciation and charity fundraiser.

Peerless trailers in Penticton chose to support the South Okananagan Women in Need Society for the second straight year with their Client Appreciation and Charity Fundraiser.

Through their annual client appreciation golf tournament and silent auction, Peerless surpassed their fundraising goal and presented SOWINS with a cheque for $8,300. This year’s donation also beat last year’s contribution of $5,700. A portion of the donation goes towards SOWINS’ annual Walk to End Abuse in 2020, with the remainder supporting SOWINS’ programs for women and children, including their Share the Spirit of Giving for Christmas program.

The 2020 Walk to End Abuse is set to take place on June 7.
