Drivers: Your Co-Pilots Are Waiting!

July 8th, 2019 by

LESS THAN ONE MONTH TO GO!

Meet Jason and his Co-pilot Connor.
Jason was a driver in last year’s Okanagan Dream Rally and had the pleasure of having young Connor in the passenger seat for the day!
In 2016, Connor was diagnosed with a type of brain cancer which required his family to stay at Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon for most of the year while receiving treatment. Thanks to his treatment, Connor is currently in remission!

This is just one of the many stories of the co-pilots and drivers that participate in the Dream Rally and the impact this event has on those involved.

The 2019 Okanagan Dream Rally is back on August 4th and we are still looking for more drivers to become involved! If you have an eligible vehicle, please consider registering to drive for a cause.
Visit www.okanagandreamrally.com or message us for more info!

The 2019 Okanagan Dream Rally features our 2nd Annual Launch Party, an event that has become a very special part of the Dream Rally, helping us raise over $200,000 in 2018 alone.

WHO THE DREAM RALLY SUPPORTS:

From 2018-2020 we are committed to helping Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon raise $500,000 to help families staying within the organization’s facilities receive the care they need. In 2017 alone, over 30% of the families staying at the facility located in Vancouver were from the Okanagan Valley. This really struck home with us and was a motivating factor in our decision to make this commitment.

The August Family Foundation is proud to announce that in addition to supporting the Ronald McDonald House BC/Yukon, proceeds from the Okanagan Dream Rally will also be donated to the KGH Foundation in support of their newest project, JoeAnna’s House.
JoeAnna’s House is expected to change the way families experience hospital care for their loved ones, keeping everyone under one roof.

A BRIEF HISTORY:

August 7, 2016 marked the date of the inaugural Okanagan Dream Rally and it was just the beginning for both what this event means to us, and what it means to our community. To date, the August Family Foundation has raised $827,000 together to support some incredible causes in our community. OUR MISSION: With the Okanagan Dream Rally, we hope to provide special children and their families with an incredibly fun-filled experience of being in the co-pilot seat of a dream car for a day. In addition, providing opportunities for our community, public figures, and businesses to support a good cause and make a difference locally in their community. Our mission is simple. We want to put a smile on the face of a child in need and provide them with a day that they will never forget. With the help of incredible drivers, sponsors, and those donating towards this event, we are able to raise funds for causes that have a profound impact our community.

EVENT BRIEF:

Participating children of the Okanagan Dream Rally will have their very own high-end rally car and driver for a day. The community and its spectators will partake in the street excitement while the most incredible supercars and sports cars from throughout Western Canada start their engines in Kelowna and circuit through the beautiful parts of the Okanagan Valley including Peachland and Penticton for an experience of a lifetime.
