3% Fundraiser

Nature’s Fare is now offering a program to non-profit organizations in the community. With every purchase made at any of the Nature’s Fare locations, the Arts Centre will receive 3% of the pretax totals submitted. The public can save their receipts and submit them to the Arts Centre which will help the Arts Council of the North Okanagan with some extra funding.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact Nancy Vince at navince@shaw.ca or 250-541-0028.
