The Okanagan College Alumni Association offers OC employees the chance to purchase wine and cider from local businesses. We’re excited to be partnering with Unusually Good Food Co., an OC Enactus project, to offer their hard apple cider.

With selections from Tantalus Vineyards, Unusually Good Cider and Indigenous World Winery, you’ll find a range of options available in time for the holidays. Partial proceeds from the sale of the wines through the alumni office will help support programming for graduates, convocation, bursaries and student events and activities.

Orders are open to all OC employees through Monday, Nov. 27. To place an order, please complete the online form. You will receive an invoice from each vendor you purchase from and payment will be processed by them. All orders will be available for pick up at the Kelowna campus by early December.

If you know of a winery that would be interested in taking part in the program, please send a note to alumni@okanagan.bc.ca.
