Bottleneck Drive raises funds for Summerland Food Bank

Money was raised during tasting events at Summerland Festival of Lights

Julian Scholefield of Okanagan Crush Pad and chair/president of the Bottleneck Drive Association met with John Bubb, president of the Summerland Food Bank society on Wednesday to present a cheque for $1,568.

The money was raised during the 30th annual Summerland Festival of Lights on Nov. 30. The Arts Centre and the Main Street Yoga Studio donated their space to Bottleneck Drive members for tastings. A $5 donation from the tasting events went to the food bank.

Bottleneck Drive wineries, cideries and a new distillery donated their products and time for the tasting.

The winery association thanks all who visited them for the tasting and donated towards helping those in need in the community.
