While away from my computer for only a few hours the three decided that for whatever apparent reason they deserved free beers on my account. Well over a period of two weeks free beers miraculously turned themselves into a free Friday lunch.
Well as the hashtag #FreeLunchOnScottDavis was out there; why not make the event a reality, thus born the idea to raise funds for the local Kelowna Community Foodbank. With no other agenda than just a Local Social Tweetup, chat, drinks and food, and the chance to meet some of the twitter folk that you exchange RT’s and ideas with online. I suggested that whatever the total food bill at the end of lunch, I would fund raise for donation and match that total to give to the charity.
Well yesterday saw six of us show up for lunch at the Kelowna Eldorado Hotel (@EldoradoKelowna).
The area below is a not a shameless plug but shout outs to these folks who are helping towards a great charity cause.
John Thiessen – Dad & Husband/Hunter-Provider that (talks & walks) family! Professional Videographer-Editor-Producer
Bruce Stranaghan -From Okanagan Car Care When you need Tires, Maintenance, or Repairs on your vehicle.
Kevin Craig – Kelowna City Councilor and UBC Okanagan student. I’m pretty fond of learning, laughing, and leading.
Frithjof – 45 yr old single 😉 German-Canadian immigrant – dad. Passionate about dragon boating, work (really!) & making it all come true.
Richard Taylor @rtstrategy – Creative & strategic marketer. Branding, design, social media, news, music, humour – all in my tweet mix!

How can you help?
- Well #FreeLunchOnScottDavis will happen again I am sure, and you are all invited to participate and come for lunch
- Bruce Stranaghan -From Okanagan Car Care was kind enough to donate (please support his business in return)
- A two wheel Alignment(value $90) that you can contact me for donation to Foodbank
- 5 “Greatest NHL Moments” DVD that you can contact me for donation to Foodbank
Everybody needs this at least once a year
I think at least $5 each for these is a great deal
And just to update you all we raised $100 on Friday that I will be dropping off at the Foodbank this week, donations towards those other items would go a long way, lets keep this going.
