The Rotary Way

The Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise is 100% driven by volunteers and proud to return the Calendar proceeds to charitable causes. We support programs that make our world a better place, both locally and internationally. This specialized, lottery advent calendar is built entirely from locally donated prizes and cash sponsorships.

Our fundraiser will benefit the most vulnerable in our community by raising funds for the Child Advocacy Centre Kelowna, the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Kelowna General Hospital, as well as local Sunrise Charities (Food for Thought backpack program, The Bridge Youth & Family Services, Freedom’s Door, and Hope Outreach to name just a few).

Over the last ten years, with the wonderful support of the community and the Rotary members, we have contributed $841,854 for humanitarian needs. A complete summary of our support is shared on our website here.


Funds earned from this year’s Season of Giving calendar will go towards worthy causes:
Kelowna General Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and The Child Advocacy Centre of Kelowna.

Our Goal: To Raise $200,000

The Season of Giving Calendar is an annual fundraising project of the Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club. Our aim is to raise at least $200,000 whereupon once the calendar is completed 100% of the proceeds will go towards the charities mentioned.

Details Behind the Making of the Calendar Art

We are very privileged to display the artwork of Marilynn Bury, who was a renowned Okanagan artist. Her daughter, Lisa Bury donated this painting to continue her mother’s legacy and connection to the Child Advocacy Centre. Marilynn’s colourful style and whimsical painting is perfect for the 3rd annual Season of Giving calendar.
