The Grindstone Award Foundation
The Grindstone Award Foundation is a local charity that provides young girls with the opportunity to play hockey, who otherwise would be unable to participate due to financial reasons. The organization aspires to spark growth in women’s hockey across the country. Their core values center around equality, empowerment, opportunity, thinking big and challenging the status quo.
Music Fest MS 2019
DKL Financial was a proud supported of the first-ever annual Music Fest for MS. The benefit concert featured Juno Award winning country artist, Jess Moskaluke and local performer, Ben Klick. The event was a huge success and raised more than $27,000 for the MS Society of Canada.
Okanagan Dream Car Rally
Dale is an annual supporter of the Okanagan Dream Car Rally. This charity event aims simply to “put a smile on the face of a child in need," while raising funds for amazing organizations. JoeAnna’s house, Ronald McDonald House, and the KGH Foundation are all supported by funds raised at this event.
Okanagan College Bright Horizons Building for Skills Campaign
As a former student of Okanagan College, Dale understands the importance of continuing to provide exceptional educational and employment opportunities here in Kelowna. Dale’s $50,000 donation to the Okanagan College Bright Horizons Building for Skills Campaign will help build the new trades training complex. DKL Financial Services will also be sponsoring a series of financial literacy and money management presentations to help trades students take control of their financial future.
BC SPCA Kelowna Branch
Dale is a passionate supporter of the BC SPCA and a lover of animals. In 2004 Dale and his family adopted Niska, their beloved dog, and cats Frankie and Burt and in June of this year Capone the pitbull became the newest addition. Dale’s continuous support of the Kelowna SPCA Branch resulted in him being honoured as supporter of the month in November 2014.
School of Thoughtfulness
Dale Lamb was among the Sun Life Financial advisors attending a conference from March 25-28, 2010, in Punta Cana where they spent a day helping out at a local school. Along with their families, the group cleaned up the grounds, did some landscaping, built a playground, and painted the school inside and outside.
Advisors also donated money to purchase new desks and Sun Life Financial made a matching donation that paid for a new roof, wiring, septic system and well, ceiling fans and fridge, generator, new doors, steps and screens. It was a rewarding hands-on experience for everyone involved and 70 children much less fortunate than us now have a school they can look forward to attending.
