John Kot, president of Kelowna Hyundai and Buy Direct Truck Centre has announced a $100,000 donation towards the Be a Lifesaver campaign, raising funds for the new Interior Heart & Surgical Centre (IHSC).
To date the campaign has raised $10.8 million towards lifesaving surgical equipment at the IHSC
, which will serve BC's Interior (750,000 residents) and is set to open in September 2015.
The gift comes at the end of their 2nd annual Operation 200 campaign.
The goal of Operation 200 is to sell 200 vehicles between both dealerships, in 30 days, resulting in a donation of $20,000!
In order to reach their goal, both dealerships have marked down all cars, trucks and SUVs by thousands to guarantee they reach their target.
, it's a cause that is close to the heart.
"Supporting the local community is important to our business, and after three successful years of business under our management, the residents of Kelowna
have been nothing but welcoming and we look forward to giving back," said John Kot
