At Westwood, we believe that being a good neighbour means doing our part to give back to the communities in which we work and live.
The mission of the British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected donations at the local BC SPCA in Kelowna. In an effort to help, Westwood has placed donation boxes in all three of our Showrooms.
The Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA) exists to provide quality hospice palliative care programs and services in the Central Okanagan, meeting the unique needs of each person’s journey through serious illness, end-of-life and bereavement. Donations and fundraising initiatives are vital to sustaining COHA in its efforts to continually provide access for everyone during life’s most difficult transitions and vulnerable moments. Westwood has supported COHA throughout the years in its mission to offer compassionate care, comfort, support and learning to those who are dying or grieving alone within our community.
We were very excited to STEP UP our support of Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA) in 2019 by participating in and winning Judge's Choice in the Team Event at Swinging with the Stars with our Wild Women of Westwood troupe of dancers!
Swinging with the Stars (SWTS) is the signature fundraiser for COHA that has raised more than $1.5 million over the ten years since its inception.
SWTS is based on the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars” and pairs professional dance instructors from Kelowna with local “celebrities”. Months of hard work culminate in an amazing night of pure entertainment with the ultimate dance performance competition AND a chance for everybody to light up the dance floor at the after-party.
