After a pause last year, we are resuming our annual tradition of spreading messages of love and caring throughout Kamloops with the 2023 edition of our Singing Valentines fundraiser. From 9:00 am to 9:00 pm on Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, February 14), we will be traveling across Kamloops presenting recipients with the one-of-a-kind experience of four well-dressed gentlemen appearing to perform a special love song just for them, and present them with a flower and something sweet to eat.
Because the special people in our lives are not the only ones who deserve a little love, we select a different local charity each year to support with their fundraiser. The charity chosen for 2023 is the Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship Society. Established in 1972, the Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship Society provides culturally appropriate programs and inclusive services that meet the needs of urban Indigenous people to improve their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We will be donating all proceeds from the 2023 Singing Valentines to KAFS to assist them in empowering the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities of Kamloops and surrounding areas.
