Okanagan Military Tattoo seeks sponsors

Okanagan Military Tattoo asks for sponsors to help get disadvantaged people to the show

Okanagan Military Tattoo organizers are looking for sponsors to help get tickets to disadvantaged or disabled youth, seniors and veterans.

The fourth annual Okanagan Military Tattoo takes place at Kal Tire Place July 29 at 7 p.m. and July 30, at 2 p.m.

For $200, a sponsor can purchase 10 tickets for the organization of their choice to attend the tattoo.

“It’s really about helping people who are physically or mentally disabled to be able to attend and enjoy the show,” said Derek Hall, vice-president.

Okanagan Military Tattoo seating is reserved and Hall said people with mobility needs should purchase their tickets sooner than later, due to the organization wanting to secure seating close to the concourse level and away from areas with more stairs.

People can expect to see two hours of local musicians, dancers, and more than 600 other performers in the show.

One performance, the Tribute to the Veterans, will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

To sponsor a group, contact Hall at 250-549-2123 or
