Kootenay Dragons raise funds

The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons are currently training to attend the Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival

The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons are currently training to attend the Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival July 27 and 28 at the Riverfront Park in Kelowna.

In September the Dragons team will be travelling to Kalispell, Montana to participate in the Montana Dragon Boat Festival on Flathead Lake.

This will be a new adventure for this team as it is the first race they have attended outside of Canada.

To enable all team members to participate and attend the festivals, the Kootenay Rhythm Dragons will be hosting a Dragon Boat Fundraiser, Friday, June 7 at Finley’s Irish Pub & Grill.

Fun begins at 6 p.m. and continues to 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15 which provides a frosty cold drink and a sizzling grilled burger. In addition, an evening of fun, music, door prizes, toonie draws, and 50/50 draws will be enjoyed by all.

Advance tickets are available from Kootenay Rhythm Dragons team members or at the door Friday evening.

Come and enjoy this Dragon Boat Fundraiser, meet team members, gather  information about the Kootenay Rhythm Dragons, and enjoy a night of good fun, food and fundraising.

The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons is an inclusive team and they want all women to be able to enjoy the sport, the camaraderie and the support of the team.

The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons appreciates the great, continued support of the community of Nelson in health, fitness and breast cancer awareness.

For more information contact Mary Walters at 250-352-3256  or mbwalters@telus.net.
