Kelowna Women in Business
A Networking Group for Women 
   in Kelowna, British Columbia

 

Our Mission Statement

Kelowna Women in Business provides networking, inspiration
and education to support the success of women in business
while contributing to charities in our community.


Kelowna Women in Business(KWIB) was established in 1993 as a not-for-profit organization created in order to give a voice to Kelowna businesswomen, whether they be professionals, run their own businesses, or work for others. Our aim is to offer as many networking opportunities as possible to all Kelowna area women and to promote one another's businesses. We hold interesting and enjoyable social events where both members and the general public are welcome to attend.

 

Our monthly gatherings alternate between an evening dinner one month and a noontime luncheon the following. We meet once a month in January, February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. In June we host a special charity event to raise funds for our chosen charity. Our total charity donations are in excess of $50,000.00 in the past eight years. Our chosen charity is always selected from the Okanagan to support those in our own community. For December a Christmas Mingle is held so all our members and guests can socialize and celebrate their successes for the year.

The Wine Tour was a success!

Thank You
 

Thank you for your contributions to our 2015 Charity Wine Tour; attending as a guest, making a donation or being a sponsor all played an important role in our success. The KWIB executive is thrilled to announce that $4,500.00 was raised. We will be combining these funds with other monies throughout the year to create a total donation of $7,500.00 to the Wish Come True Society. This is a 50% increase over our 2013-2014 $5,000.00 donation. Our donation will help Wish Come True Society move closer to their goal of building a children’s hospice here in Kelowna.

We would like to acknowledge Tantalus, The View, House of Rose and Summerhill Wineries for their great hosting and wine tastings. Special thanks to House of Rose which donated $1.00 for every bottle of wine sold- 82 bottles in total. We would also like to thank Bead Trails for presenting a bead to each of our guests and Jules Galloway, Evolve Design for the fabulous wine bags. These extra surprises for our guests were an amazing kick-off to the day’s festivities.

KWIB would like to show our appreciation to all our guests, donors and sponsors with a promotion for our fall events. With a registration for any two of our three Fall 2015 events you will automatically be entered into a draw to win a free ticket to our Christmas Mingle in December. Our 2014 Christmas Mingle at the Lindon House was a wonderful event not to be missed this year.

Remember that membership has its benefits and we would love to have you join, please visit our website at www.kwib.org for full information.

Lastly, we would kindly ask that you show your support for all our donors, sponsors and each other by shopping or using their services. Together we can grow stronger and more successful by helping each other.

Sincerely,

The KWIB Executive
