Giving Back

The kitchen is the heart of the home. And every home is part of a community.

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.

Central Okanagan Hospice Association

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.

This year, Westwood is excited to announce that we will be STEPPING UP our support of COHA by entering Team Westwood into the Swinging with the Stars dance competition.

Swinging with the Stars

We are very excited to STEP UP our support of Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA) by entering Team Westwood in the Team Event of the upcoming Swinging with the Stars!

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.

We can’t wait to step onto the dance floor on Saturday February 23, 2019 at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort. Put on your dancing shoes and come join us!
