Papa John's Pizza Brings Sunshine Dreams Back to Okanagan
The Sunshine DreamLift from Kelowna took off on December 9th 2015, thanks to a new partnership between The Sunshine Foundation of Canada and Papa John’s Pizza.
The partnership kicked off with the DreamCookie, with one dollar from each purchase going towards Sunshine Dreams. The DreamCookie was on sale at participating locations – Kelowna, West Kelowna, Kamloops and Prince George and continued with Papa John’s Dreams for Kids Day on April 29th. Participating Papa John’s Pizza locations in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Kamloops, and Prince George donated 100 per cent of the day's proceeds and staff wages to Sunshine’s Individual Dreams and Sunshine DreamLift programs.
“We are excited to start this new partnership with Papa John’s Pizza which will ensure that we continue to fulfill Individual Dreams for kids and launch the Sunshine DreamLift from Kelowna in December – Sunshine’s 60th DreamLift,” says Nancy Sutherland, CEO of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. “Sunshine and Papa John’s are a perfect fit with shared values of delivering a unique and personal experience and recognizing that families and kids are at the heart of what we do.”
“Our Team at Papa John’s looks forward to ensuring that children in the Okanagan continue to have their Sunshine Dreams come true,” says Geoff Linquist, President of Papa John's Pizza BC and owner of the Kelowna and West Kelowna Papa John’s locations. “I have participated in previous Sunshine DreamLifts and know this is such a special program with so much community support. Papa John’s just had to do whatever we could to keep it going.”
