Lexus of Kelowna, a part of the Sentes Automotive, has a history of making a community difference in the Okanagan area and across British Columbia. The great people in our province have been central to our success. We value giving back in any way that we can by supporting a number of local organizations.
Lexus of Kelowna truly believes in investing in the education and development of local talented students as a way of furthering our community. In 2015, Lexus of Kelowna made a contribution of $50,000 to the OUC Trades Building Project. Okanagan College offers provincially, nationally, and internationally recognized Foundation and Apprenticeship programs in over 20 trades.
For several years, Lexus of Kelowna has also had the pleasure of supporting the University of British Columbia Okanagan JDC West competition team through mentoring, coaching, and an annual corporate sponsorship. The JDC West competition is a well-respected experiential learning opportunity that involves its students in business knowledge, invaluable networking, and a great deal of community outreach through the B.C. Cancer Society, B.C. SPCA, and many other local charities. The competition provides students with an opportunity to compete with each other in all facets of business while developing networking, critical thinking, and leadership skills as they prepare to begin their careers in the business world.
2018 marked the seventh year that we proudly sponsored the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s Discovery Luncheon with an annual contribution of $10,000 as well as many volunteered hours from our employees. With the help of Sentes Automotive, the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s Discovery Luncheon has raised over $800,000 to support clinical trials research and bring much-needed equipment to the B.C. Cancer Agency Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior.
In addition to supporting the B.C. Cancer Foundation, Lexus of Kelowna has been able to take part in many fantastic fundraising efforts throughout the Okanagan.
Many of these causes have a special meaning to our employees. This holiday season, we are excited to sponsor five local families in need and provide them with food, Christmas gifts, and other household items. We are also donating a 2008 Toyota Matrix along with winter tires and gas cards to a nominated local family in need.
Through various food drives, we have been able to support the Central Okanagan Food Bank as well as the Kelowna Woman’s Shelter. Our staff has also worked to collect used books for Literacy Day, suits and dresses for a local high school, as well as donate tracksuits for local minor hockey athletes.
Some of the causes we support have put on events that we have taken part in, such as a golf tournament for Swing for Kids, an Okanagan Marathon supporting Autism Kelowna, and a taco luncheon to support the Canadian Red Cross. Our leaders and employees truly value getting the opportunity to give back to the community in conjunction with their employment.
