February 24, 2016 Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs will be participating in Pink Shirt Day. Our goal to increase public awareness in the Okanagan and beyond and demonstrate that we are all a part of the solution. We are helping kids and adults become resilient, confident and willing to stand up to bullying.
We are excited to announce that TELUS has come on board as our title sponsor of the 2nd Annual Pink Shirt Day Breakfast. Get the tickets here now!
Last year's Pink Shirt Day Breakfast was a great success and we are looking forward to building on that success.
The breakfast will feature special guest speaker Leah Gold Stein - " Living a Life with No Limits –Overcoming Bullying" . Leah, World Champion Kickboxer, Ultra Endurance Cyclist and Israeli Undercover Police Officer will share her message of having faced fear many times, and learning that no matter how genuine the actual danger we confront may be, we have two choices: fight or flight. She will talk about how some of us have fallen into a third, much more dangerous category, by simply freezing. Doing nothing, and risking neither failure nor success. Full of tragedies and triumphs, crashes and podiums, Leah Goldstein’s life has been a long series of fights and even a few flights make for her fascinating story about being unstoppable.
Location: Laurel Packinghouse
Time: 7:00-9:30 AM
Guest Speaker: Leah Goldstein
Ticket Price: $35 or a table of 8 for $250 - Tickets are available here.
Breakfast will be prepared by the Okanagan College Culinary Arts Department. Food supplies donated by Sysco Kelowna, Coffee, muffins and yogurt parfaits from McDonalds and Tea from DAVID's Tea.
We are also encouraging people to come in their pink attire. Leah will be sign her book "No Limits" and Kaleena Cakes will be providing a tasty take away.
Pink Shirts can be purchased at Pink Shirt Day or at your local London Drugs in 2016.
Proceeds from Pink Shirts and Pinks Shirt Day Breakfast support our mission to provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. Our goal is to ensure all our children, youth and families are both physically and emotionally safe and feel a sense of belonging and respect.
We are already excited about next year's event.
