Harleys and Hockey – two worlds collide for the Food Bank


When the bikes are parked for the winter in Kelowna, a good portion of riders are in the rink watching the WHL Kelowna Rockets. Perfect opportunity for bikers to continue opening their hearts for charity.  Local Harley Davidson dealer, Kane’s, has come up with a way to enjoy the off season while keeping with biker roots.
