We Support

Kelowna RibFest Causes

Kelowna RibFest is 100% volunteer driven, and proud to put 100% of the proceeds back into the community. Through the Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise, we also support a large number of select international programs that help make our world a better place.

Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for local causes. Last year, for example, we gave $27,870 to JoeAnna’s House. You can help make that happen when you bring the family, round up your friends, or come entertain your clients at this year’s Kelowna RibFest!

RibFest 2019 supports JoeAnna’s House


Service Above Self

Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise members volunteer their year planning and hosting Kelowna RibFest so that we can raise money for important community organizations and international aid programs. 100% of the money raised is given away as grants!
