Kelowna memorial moves forward, but still needs donations

November 1, 2023  By infonews

Plans to build a memorial to the five men who died in a 2021 Kelowna, B.C. tower crane collapse are moving ahead.

While the online fundraiser by the North Okanagan Labour Council to raise money for the permanent memorial has a goal of $300,000, it’s collected more than $122,000 so the project is ready to move forward. Organizers would like to see construction started in April at the latest so it’s completed in time for the July 12th anniversary of the tragedy.

Finalizing the construction documents is expected to be completed in December while tendering to invited bidders should be done by February. Estimates are showing the project can probably be completed for $200,000 so more contributions are still needed. Donations can be made here.
