Community Support

Proactive and Productive Community Involvement


Cherry Lane Shopping Centre takes pride in the Penticton community.

Cherry Lane’s main charity of choice is the Okanagan Similkameen Neurological Society. .

Copied From OSNS Child & Youth Development Centre:
‘Since 1978, The OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre has been dedicated to supporting children, youth and families in the South Okanagan Similkameen through early intervention and family-centred care. We offer important services and programs including clinical therapy, family support, and child care services. Our team of caring professionals recognizes that each person who comes to us has individual needs. The OSNS is a leader in supporting young people with developmental and behavioural needs. More than 1,400 children visit the OSNS annually from Penticton and the surrounding areas. To discover the array of OSNS services available, obtain referral information, visit our website.’


Throughout the year, Cherry Lane Shopping Centre supports the community by contributing to a number of non-profit associations and community related events.

Each year we receive numerous requests for sponsorship, raffles, auction items, advertising or display space.

Due to the ever rising number of requests, Cherry Lane Shopping Centre is implementing a standardized process that asks for detailed information to help us make the best possible decision regarding your request.

We ask that you submit a letter on corporate letterhead describing your organization, if you are a non-profit organization, along with what sort of donation you are looking for. Each properly completed request is evaluated against Cherry Lane Shopping Centre’s total funds available, our criteria and the overall compatibility to our objectives.

Please submit your letter of request at least 90 days before your event or required deadline.

  • Are a registered non-profit society/organization who demonstrate community support and involvement
