Two Summerland organizations are among five from the region which have been awarded gaming grants.
The grants, announced last week, include $22,500 to the Summerland Community Arts Council and $15,000 to the Summerland Museum and Heritage Society.
Three Penticton organizations also received money.
The Penticton Minor Baseball Association received $9,360, the Penticton Aquatic Association received $13,200 and the Penticton Minor Lacrosse Association received $10,850.
Throughout the province, $3,690,470 will be distributed to 146 organizations.
“From preserving our local history to giving tomorrow’s Olympic champions a club and place to practice their skills, these grants make a difference to the people who enjoy participating in local sports and culture,” said MLA Bill Barisoff.
