Year after year, the Valley residents, visitors and businesses take the time to give back to the community.

Their hearts of gold have helped raise thousands of dollars for many organizations, individuals and families in times of need as well as in positive opportunities such as individuals and groups excelling in different activities.

Copper Point Resort and its parent company Rohit Communities is no exception and prides itself on being a part of this Valley and giving back.

Before the resort even opened its doors to the public last month, a variety of donations were given out to charitable organizations in the community.

“We try to take part in different charities every year in whatever way we can,” says Michellene Kandert, Rohit Owner Representative.

“We also like to get involved as volunteers or add fun whenever we can to create more awareness to the event.”

In an effort to raise funds, the resort sold excess and lightly damaged furniture to those who had been working on the project.

The money raised from that was given to charities in what the resort called their Five Star Giveaway in conjunction with their award winning marketing campaign Five Star Camping Redefined at Copper Point Resort.

“It was a way for us to have a bit of fun and give back to charities that have big impacts in important areas such as; families, children, sports, seniors and mental health.

“A little over $12,500 was raised and all the funds from this sale were given out,” said Kandert.

The five charitable organizations chosen included:

Local paragliding enthusiasts Max Fanderl and Penny Powers representing Canada in the extreme Red Bull X-Alps race in Europe, Invermere Seniors Hall, Columbia Valley Food Bank, Alzheimer Society of BC and Verge for Youth, which will soon be hosting their annual fundraising golf tournament coming up July 31, 2011 on The Ridge at Copper Point Golf Course.

The Copper Point Resort thanks all the many individuals, Valley partners whose ongoing commitment and contribution make it all possible and looks forward to providing continued support to the community in the future.
