The Peacock Sheridan Group understands the importance of helping kids, youth, and families. The Partners and Staff of this financial planning firm have families of their own and they value the family resources available to them in the community. To give back to kids, youth, and families, the Peacock Sheridan Group donates $10 to the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club for every Kelowna Rockets goal scored during the 2016-17 hockey season.
To the Peacock Sheridan Group, donating to Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs was a way to directly impact kids and young people in the community. They know our funds go towards programs and services that help kids and youth explore opportunities and reach their full potential. “I know that Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs staff work very hard to help kids and families in our community,” said Grant Sheridan, Partner, at PSG.
The Kelowna Rockets donation idea merged the Peacock Sheridan Group’s charitable philosophy with their interest in kids and passion for hockey. “It seemed like a fun way to give back. The Players were really excited to know they’d be helping others with every goal,” said Grant. Last year, Rockets goals added up to a $2690 donation for our organization!
Grant Sheridan also runs the Kelowna Chiefs, another local Junior Hockey team. Through his involvement in hockey, Grant has seen youth face tough circumstances: “Players come from a variety of backgrounds. Sometimes we have players who have grown from times when they needed help with finances or transportation. We want to help eliminate barriers to participation whenever possible to help kids grow in sport and in the community.” The Peacock Sheridan Group felt that Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs shared the same desire to be inclusive.
We are so grateful to the Peacock Sheridan Group for their continued generosity. You can find tickets for Kelowna Rockets games here. Let’s cheer on our home team together!
