The day is capped-off with a hearty barbecue, childrenfs activities and live entertainment.
The Variety Boat for Hope is about more than just a day in the sun.
Through the generous support of local skippers, the business community, and heart-filled volunteers, funds are raised for the two months leading up to the event.

Kelowna Gospel Mission.


The Gospel Mission was a successful event with the Diamond Kelowna team.
Mary and Corrie started off with peeling almost 100 pounds of potatoes in the morning.
The rest of us serving around 150 meals to guests at a sit down dinner consisting of roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy veggies, and garlic toast.
Everyone had a great time and will be looking forward to the next!





Toque Tuesday.


Toque Tuesday is a campaign initiated by the charity organization Raising The Roof to help the homeless.
gThis time of the year, potentially, the coldest and wettest and a tough time of the year,
(itfs about) what those people are going through on the streets right now,h Baillie said during last yearfs tourney.
gIf one day a year, we can make homelessness at the front of our thoughts, thatfs what this is all about,h Baillie added.
Toque Tuesday takes place annually on the first Tuesday in February.

Diamond Delivery has embarked on sponsoring medic training and an ambulance for Liberia.


Diamond Delivery has embarked on sponsoring medic training and an ambulance for Liberia, a nation in sub-Sahara West Africa.
In partnership with the Liberian Ministry of Health and Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation (B.C.), an ambulance service launch is anticipated for fall 2018.
In partnership with the Kamloops Firefighters Charity Association, an ambulance was purchased in Montreal and driven across the country by Kamloops firefighter David Sakaki and Rick Diamond, owner of Diamond Delivery.
Along with the ambulance, the container will deliver medic emergency equipment necessary to protect and support critically ill patients along with hospital beds and equipment for Rennie Hospital, a rural hospital severely impacted by Ebola.
Dr. Francis Kateh, Deputy Minister of Health & Chief Medical Officer for Liberia identifies the transformation this service will have on the country.
gThe importance of an organized, centralized EMS (Emergency Medical Services) for our health care delivery system will cannot be overemphasized.
Its impact will be felt at all levels of care and will go a long way in helping us reduce mortalities and improve outcome for our pregnant women , neonates, infants and victims of road traffic accidents.h
A celebratory launch was held at the BC Legislature, attended by MLAs and stakeholders.
The ambulance is being named gPatrickh in honor of a West African engineer who inspired the critical need for an ambulance service.

We have been so blessed to be invited back next year to bring more magic to the success of this great event.
Thank you from all our hearts, Diamond Delivery and BC Children's Hospital.





May 2018 - Grand Forks Flood Response


During the last month British Columbia has experienced high water levels leading to heavy flooding in the regions of Kootenay, Okanagan, and Langley. Diamond Delivery was proud to once again support our community by partnering with GlobalMedic and Proctor & Gamble Canada to help transport 240 Family Clean-Up Kits to the affected community of Grand Forks. Each Clean-Up Kit included a variety cleaning products, along with a bucket and other much needed supplies for those returning to their homes as the waters recede and the recovery begins. These kits are being distributed to those most in need, and will help the affected communities of BC get back on their feet as quickly as possible. Diamond Delivery has been a successful BC-based business for more than 40 years. We maintain a strong focus on community and family, and strive to set an example for corporate social responsibility.
