Our Lead Donor for January is Argus Properties Ltd.

Argus describes their reasons for being involved with the opera and this campaign: Being a part of the community and developing a sense of connectedness is very important to all of us at Argus Properties.  We believe that by assisting others with donations, or lending a hand is a way for all of us to be able to improve others’ lives a little step at a time, and become a participant in a community that cares and respects one another.

Argus has embraced the growth of healthy communities with an unwavering strategic commitment to trusted business relationships, sustainable development, and generous ongoing philanthropy.

Partnering with Opera Kelowna is the perfect balance of appreciation and development of the arts and opera, contributing to the multicultural mix of Kelowna and the region in such a wonderful way! Fostering a thriving arts and cultural sector plays a crucial role in connections to our community for residents and visitors of all ages, by bringing a renewed understanding of what goes into an arts production that brings so much joy and entertainment to all. 

Over the years, the honour of collaborating with Opera Kelowna through dynamic performances from “Opera Under the Stars” at UBCO, to the fresh and stylish twist of Puccini’s La bohème, and intimate performances at the Hotel Eldorado have collectively brought us a greater appreciation of the arts. The long-standing commitment to promoting the artistic flair of opera and classical music to all audiences will be a hallmark of our organization. 

Opera Kelowna’s Artistic Director, Rosemary Thomson has been working with Argus on exciting new opportunities for the years to come. She says, “We applaud Argus for their generosity and the commitment they are showing creating connection in our community, especially as this difficult time.”

Please join Argus in committing to a vibrant performing arts sector as a central pillar of making Kelowna an amazing place to live and work.
