Shopping cart fundraiser for Inn From the Cold

6/22/2012

A fundraising event for Inn From the Cold has teams competing with one another in a shopping cart scavenger hunt.

The 1st Annual Push to End Homelessness takes place on Saturday and is memory of Arthur Cottie, a former shelter user who was a spearhead for the event and passed away earlier this year.

Coordinator Tara Tschritter is excited by the support from the community.

"We are really pleased.  We were aiming for 20 for our very first event and we can see how this event in the future is going to get a lot of momentum."

About 22 teams signed up this year.

The shopping carts are meant to represent a small portion of homeless people who rely on the carts as their lifelines.

Cottie was also known in Kelowna for having a decorated shopping cart.
