As a leader in the Okanagan sport community, PacificSport Okanagan and the City of Kelowna invite you to be our guest at the 2018 Community Sport Hero Awards Reception. At the reception, we will recognize and honour local volunteers, athletes and service providers for their outstanding contributions to sport in our community. Reception details are as follows:

Date: February 7, 2018
Location: Rotary Centre for the Arts (Mary Irwin Theatre)
Welcome Reception: 6:00 - 6:30 pm
Awards: 6:30 - 8:00 pm

  • Business Casual
  • Appetizers & Drinks Provided

Along with the recognition of this year’s winners, this 15th Anniversary Year of the Reception will take some time to recognize Sport Hero Award Recipients of the past 15 years, to send-off Okanagan athletes headed to 2018 BC Winter Games in Kamloops, and to celebrate the Okanagan athletes headed to the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Games in PyeongChang. Once again, this year’s reception will feature a keynote address from a Community Sport Hero.

This is also your time to nominate that special volunteer (coach, manager, administrator, official, etc.) and/or athlete achiever whose talent and dedication have "caught your eye" or helped make your sport experience extraordinary.

Deadline for nominations is Friday, December 22, 2017

To attend the 2018 Community Sport Hero Awards Reception, RSVP by February 1.  Event is FREE to attend!

*Please Note:  all City of Kelowna based nominees will automatically be considered for the 2018 City of Kelowna Civic & Community Awards in April 2018.
