Every business that signs on as a Friend of the Games receives a storefront window cling to show the world they are backing the community and that they have got Game, just as the event slogan — Penticton's Got Game — suggests.

“There are many businesses that have signed on as Friends of the Games supporters, and many more are needed to ensure that the 2016 BC Winter Games are a success,” said Host Society President Bill Bidlake. “There are many opportunities for the business community to support the Games, the largest amateur multi-sport event in B.C. that will increase the profile of Penticton and South Okanagan region.”

The 2016 BC Winter Games take place Feb. 25 to 28, 2016 and are a huge undertaking. Over 2,000 young athletes, coaches, officials and families will come to the South Okanagan, resulting in significant economic impact for local businesses.

For Greg Caverly, Owner of Accent Living & Fireplace Gallery, becoming a Friend of the Games was an easy decision.

“It’s good for small businesses, because they’ll get a lot of exposure for their business during the Games with that many people coming to town. It’s also a great mentoring program for youth, and a huge benefit for our community overall. It’s awesome that Penticton can host a huge event like this,” Caverly said. “We’re hugely community driven at Accent Living & Fireplace Gallery; we like to take part in community initiatives. We wanted to support the BC Winter Games because we want more of those types of events coming to town, and ultimately, have more people learn about what we do and what we offer. It’s very exciting.”

The Host Society is looking for Friends of the Games to ensure the event sets the standard for future BC Games.

It is estimated the Games will have a $1.8 million economic impact for the region in February of 2016, potential for equipment legacy for local organizations and a financial legacy can be reinvested into local sports and community projects.

Friends of the Games receive a myriad of benefits, including attending many of the inspiring events held over the four days. Depending on the commitment level, Friends of the Games can participate in creating those memories for athletes, like presenting athletes with their medals.

Sponsorship with cash and in-kind donations will leave an important legacy to your community.

The BC Winter Games showcase BC’s best young developing athletes and provide a unique opportunity for athletes to experience provincial competition in a multi-sport Games setting, taking the first step towards the national and international stage. Competition will take place over four days in 17 sports such as badminton, biathlon, basketball, curling, diving, figure skating, gymnastics, judo, karate, skiing and speed skating, plus more.

This will be the fourth time Penticton has hosted the BC Games. The city was the host of the inaugural BC Summer Games in 1978, the 1990 BC Winter Games and the 1995 BC Summer Games.

Penticton has first-class sport facilities and a wealth of volunteer experience – including hosting the inaugural BC Summer Games in 1978. The Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games will prove to be a memorable event for BC’s best developing athletes, coaches, and officials from Feb. 25 to 28, 2016.
