A celebration of life for Penticton philanthropist David Kampe is set for Sunday.
The service will be held at 1 p.m. on June 23 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre (273 Power St.).
Kampe, 77, died on May 8 surrounded by friends and family.
He leaves behind a legacy of generosity and is being honoured posthumously with an appointment to the Order of British Columbia. As well, he was a successful businessman as the owner of Peters Bros. Construction and built the team that today owns and operates it.
Kampe gave nearly $8 million to the Penticton Regional Hospital expansion project, resulting in the new patient care tower being named after him. He also was a major donor to the Penticton Peach Festival, helping to keep it one of the largest free family festivals in Canada by sponsoring headlining performers. Kampe also provided funds to ensure children attend Vees hockey games for free.
In lieu of flowers, those looking to pay their respects are asked to contribute to the Penticton Secondary Schools Bursary and Scholarship Foundation (mailing address at 158 Eckhardt Ave. E., Penticton B.C., V2A 1Z3. Registered charity number: 890405244RR0001).
