Destination Osoyoos Hosts Yotes Tailgate Party

Destination Osoyoos helped to host a Tailgate Party before the Osoyoos Coyotes game on Wednesday November 29th.

The tailgate was to help raise money for the Osoyoos Coyotes and to show appreciation to local stakeholders and businesses in Osoyoos.

This truly was a great community event, with many Osoyoos businesses offering generous donations to help make the tailgate a success!

BBQ’d burgers and hotdogs were served by volunteer Glen Peter  with all food donated from Buy Low Osoyoos and AG Foods Osoyoos! The BBQ for use during the evening was donated by the Osoyoos Credit Union.

Beer was also served by the Osoyoos Rotary Club in true tailgate fashion.

Wine samples were provided by game sponsor Nk’Mip Cellars, plus live entertainment from local singer Diane Ball helped to make spirits bright before the game.

Just over $1000 was donated to the Osoyoos Coyotes Hockey Team from the Tailgate Party Sales.

Afterwards, a nail-biting game was enjoyed by all as the Osoyoos Coyotes took on Kelowna Chiefs with a 5-3 win for Osoyoos.
