Big White Ski Resort Raises Over $8K For Local Ukraine Charity

Posted On: May 05, 2022 |
Thanks to a new colour combo of the famous Big White pompom snowball toque, and the generous donation of an on-mountain business, an $8,302.80 donation was presented to the Kelowna Stands With Ukraine Association on Friday, May 6.

"While Ukraine may be far from the Okanagan, we know the tragic events of the past couple months have been felt acutely by our Ukrainian community here," says Michael J. Ballingall, Senior Vice President at Big White Ski Resort Ltd. "We want to give a huge thank you to our local community and the larger Big White family for making this happen."

At the beginning of April, the retail team at Big White Ski Resort launched a fundraising initiative for Ukraine with all proceeds from new blue and yellow toque going to the local group. The resort set a goal of raising $10,000 Kelowna Stands With Ukraine, and expects more toque purchases and donations to come in to reach that amount.

The resort is currently sold out online of the L/XL size toque. S/M and Kids sizes are still available.
