North Okanagan First Responders Appreciation Night is Nov. 12

Planning is underway for the second annual North Okanagan First Responders Appreciation Night.

The event is Nov. 12 when the Vernon Vipers take on the Penticton Vees at Kal Tire Place.

“All first responders, including police, fire, ambulance, tow trucks and search and rescue personnel, are invited,” said Beth Marks, committee chairperson.

The Vipers have donated tickets for the game.

“We’re very happy to be partnering with the appreciation committee again and providing first responder tickets,” said Todd Miller, Vipers executive vice-president.

“Our team and the whole organization believe strongly in community involvement and support and, in fact, the 50/50 draw at this year’s game will go towards the burn fund supported by Vernon Fire Rescue.”

Sponsors, to date, include The Morning Star, Kiss FM and Sutton Group Lakefront Realty.  Any businesses wishing to participate can contact Dave Forai at 250-549-3944.

We’re hoping for a huge public turnout for appreciation night and we’re urging everyone in the community to join in by attending the game,” said Marks.

First responders wanting to attend can call to call 250-549-3944 to reserve their complimentary tickets for the evening.
