RibFest not only brings the meat. It brings in the cash, too.

The fourth annual event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise, raised approximately $80,000 for local charities in 2019. The money came primarily from sponsorships, the beverage garden, and the raffle that ran concurrently with the festival.

“The funds raised during Sunrise Rotary RibFest allow us to help local organizations,” president Susan McIntyre said in a press release. “Together, we work to make Kelowna a stronger community. There is so much need that we need to raise even more funds in 2020.”
