Did someone say giant foam party in Penticton? The Kiwanis Club of Penticton has partnered with the City of Penticton and Amuzing Fun Rentals to hold a summer-end fundraiser in support of the West Kelowna wildfire relief on Sunday, Sept. 3 at Gyro Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will be carnival-style games, inflatables, photo booth, music and a foam party finale like no other, said organizers. All proceeds from tickets are going to the Penticton Firefighters Charitable Society, who are collecting donations for the West Kelowna Professional Firefighters disaster relief fund for the McDougall Creek Fire.

Participants/families will purchase tickets to play the various activities. Each activity will cost one ticket, and the suggested donation will be $20 for an arm’s length of tickets. The finale will be an epic foam party, which will be free for all to enjoy.

“We know this is a very quick turnaround, but with the situation in West Kelowna evolving from evacuation to recovery, we wanted to provide Penticton an opportunity to come together and show community support for our neighbours while having fun with the whole family before heading back to school,” said organizers.
