2nd Annual Pink Shirt Day Breakfast
The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club is excited to announce that TELUS has come on board as their 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.
