Great times at the 11th Annual Giver Balls Open
The 11th Annual Giver Balls Open Golf Tournament by Oronge Boardshop and the Bluebird Day Fund went off beautifully at Pineridge Golf Course in Kamloops! A brave turnout of teams rolled the dice against the weather and won, the rain held off and the balls went flying. Huge prizes, giveaways and 50/50s, a great dinner and loads of high fives were par for the day. Congratulations to all the teams.
A massive thanks goes out to Pineridge and their staff, our volunteers and board members and off course the teams who helped raise big money for the littles programs for the up-coming winter season. High fives two times to Adam Nicholas of Alpine Images Photography for taking great photos as always. Last but certainly not least, we couldn’t have done it without our sponsors who came through huge and brought big money to the table. Thanks to:

The 12th Annual Fall
Ball Breaks the Record!
In just two short days, The 12th Annual Fall Ball sold out all 150 tickets!! We believe this was due to two big reasons: 1) Our headliner for this years event is the great band SHRED KELLY! and 2) we are going back to our roots at the great (yet smaller venue) of Bottoms Bar and Grill.
Now as much as we appreciate the overwhelming response from our friends and supporters for selling out so fast, we are sorry to all those supporters who were not able to get a ticket in time. We are looking into a possible extension to the venue (no promises) so those on our waiting list for tickets still may have a chance to join in. To join the waitlist, please contact us through our event page on Facebook through the link HERE.
For those who were lucky enough to get a ticket, get ready for an incredible night at this years Red Carpet Affair, the ‘Gold Ball’, black and gold full formal. Great Music, Food, Prizes, Merchandise and a ton of love with amazing people await you at Bottoms Bar & Grill, Nov 9th. Doors at 7pm with red carpet photos until 9pm courtesy of Alpine Images Photography.

The Bluebird Day Fund would be nothing without an army of dedicated, hard working volunteers. They help to pull our events together which raise thousands of dollars for kids who just want to ride and play. These are just a few of our awesome volunteers we'd like to thank. For everyone else, don't worry we're coming to honour you as well. Want to nominate an awesome BDF volley?
