Swinging with the Stars is the Central Okanagan Hospice Association’s signature fundraiser that has raised more than $1.5 million over the ten years since it’s inception.

Based on the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars,” which pairs professional dance instructors from Kelowna with local celebrities. Local celebrities and their professional instructors volunteer their valuable time and work hard over the six months to perform their dances. Three trophies are awarded that night; Most Pledges Raised, Audience Choice* and Judges’ Choice Trophies. It is an amazing night, filled with various dance styles and pure entertainment, a night you’ll never forget. The fun never ends…light up the dance floor at the after party.
