Motorcycle riders collected toys and donations

We appreciate your generosity in helping put a smile on the faces of the children of the South Okanagan .

Dear Editor:

The Okanagan Motorcycle Riders Association (OMRA), along with St. Vincent de Paul Society, would like to thank the generous sponsors who helped make the 27th Annual South Okanagan Toy Run such a success for 2014. This year we were able to raise $1,850 and approximately 300 toys were donated.

Further donations are always welcome at St. Vincent de Paul Society located at St. Ann’s Hall, 1296 Main St., Penticton.

We appreciate your generosity in helping put a smile on the faces of the children of the South Okanagan who may otherwise not have a gift at Christmas.

We would also like to thank all the participants who showed and rode. We couldn’t have such a successful event without your overwhelming support.

Roy Colmer,

Toy Run Director, OMRA
