Silver Star is proud to be part of the community. We sponsor local charities & events, arts & culture, athletes & schools, and more. Our Silver Star teams volunteer throughout the year to help raise money for Cancer Care and other important research.
We care about the community we live, play and work in and that’s why we continue to support and participate in numerous community initiatives. As stewards for the betterment of our communities we’re concerned not only with our contribution but also with the outcome of the contribution.
We work hard to be a business that makes a difference in peoples lives, both on and off the mountain. You can read about some of our stories below.
RELAY FOR LIFE
We’re very proud of our involvement over the past few years in the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life, contributing over $50,000 for their cause.
Every year Silver Star supports and participats in the Relay, and as a team we have raised more than $10,000 each year. Fund-raising for this event begins early during the season with donation cans and special events. For 2013 we’ve already raised $6,546.97, leaving us $3,453.03 away from reaching our goal of $10,000.
Along with raising money and awareness, we provide volunteers to assist with the set up, BBQ, Kids Zone, and tear down at the event.
A few details about the weekend’s festivities for 2013:
It’s too late to add individuals to our team however if anyone would like raise funds or to join forces with a group, all donations can be processed through General Team Donation on the Silver Star Team Page
We are in the heart of the Okanagan and an important part of local events, charities and activities throughout the area.
Kelowna BC SPCA
Nov 22, 2013
The Kelowna BCSPCA would like to thank you for supporting the 6th Annual BCSPCA Gala and being a part of our celebration of the animals.
The support from the community for this year’s fundraising event was overwhelming and helped raise over $125,000 for our local animals. We truly appreciate your support and the ski passes you donated.
It is companies such as yours who help us find our furry friends their “forever homes”. All the money raised from the gala goes to the Kelowna Branch of the BCSPCA to help abused, abandoned and unwanted animals in our community.
You made a difference in an animal’s life. We and the animals thank you for your continued support!

Your support is sincerely and gratefully appreciated! Many thanks from all the animals and staff at Vernon BC SPCA.

OPERATION FOOD DRIVE
In conjunction with the Salvation Army Food Bank we host our Operation Food Drive every November. Setting up ‘shop’ in various locations around Vernon we gladly accept food donations on behalf of the food bank. More importantly, we sell opening weekend lift tickets for just $20, will every cent of the proceeds donated to the cause. Many of our staff donate their time (and often warmth) for the day, or weekend to participate, and their enthusiasm helps us to contribute thousands each year. In fact just last year over $12,000 worth of lift tickets were given out.
