This year’s sold-out event broke records in raising vital funds for JFS’ programs and services.

Lane Merrifield’s passion for his work was inspiring. He shared his incredible journey from a small start-up in Kelowna to becoming one of Disney’s youngest executive vice-presidents, and called us to focus on the essentials – knowing our values, staying true to them, and giving back to the community.

Special thanks to our 2019 Innovators Lunch Committee: Candice Thal, Tamar Bakonyi, Shannon Ezekiel, Sherri Wise and Todd Thal.
