LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUSES LENS ON FOOD BANK

Helping the Kelowna Food Bank this fall is as easy as getting your picture taken!

Elizabeth and Mike Soergel of Aviva Studios will be kicking off a new fundraiser next month called “Christmas in September”. The event will be held September 25th and 26th, 2010. It’s a weekend for families, couples and individuals to have professional portraits taken in support of the Kelowna Food Bank.

“I’m really excited about this project,” said Soergel. “It’s a great way for us to get into the spirit of giving early while providing the community with a great opportunity to support our local food bank”.

All participants will receive a 1/2 hour studio portrait session with Aviva Studios and a set of 25 custom Christmas Cards for only $50. when you donate a bag of non-perishable food items for the Kelowna Food Bank. Items that are always in demand are baby food, tuna, canned meat and soup just to name a few.

“We currently provide help to approximately 40,000 people a year through our location, and 40% of those are children”, say Rob Weller, operations manager at the Food Bank. “Projects like Christmas in September are a great way to help maintain the levels we require to support these needs”.

Space is limited for the “Christmas in September” event as is the beautiful Okanagan summer sun so call now to reserve your space and be part of this great weekend.
