We send our best to ‘Stuff A Bus’ for charity – Helping more local children have a Christmas dinner

Posted by | News, Staff Feautres | No Comments

1,200 children will be receiving meals this Christmas thanks to the efforts of iheartradio’s Stuff A Bus event.

$450,000 worth of food and donations were gathered in 2 days as the Central Okanagan pooled their efforts. Our team was also there to support the cause. Troika’s construction team CorWest put forth their best and pitched in on the 600 turkeys.

“A little food, a little cash, a little love for those that need a little help.”

“Mike and I had an opportunity to represent all the staff in the TRIBE by stuffing the bus on Saturday…” said Ray Wynsouw CHP. “We at CorWest Builders and Troika Developments are passionate about building communities. We are equally as passionate about helping those in the community.”

Audrey Houhgton's Mission Hill Festival of Trees Submission

Mission Hill is Lighting Up West Kelowna Christmas Trees… Again!

Posted by | News, Staff Feautres | No Comments

–Celebrate Date Night for a Great Cause This Weekend – Mission Hill’s Festival of Trees

BC Children’s Hospital takes the spotlight for the second year in a row at Mission Hill Estate Winery’s ‘Festival of Trees’. Starting Nov. 23  and running until January 4th, you will have a chance to experience “professional” tree design and maybe steal some ideas for yourself.  Each tree has its own theme, lending itself to the expression of each philanthropist.

Votes are represented by the total donations earned by each piece and are tallied at the end of the event. The totals are then donated to the BC Children’s & Women’s Hospital, meaning that you will be in the company of others who are just as much about the advancement of our medical facilities.

Troika’s own in-house interior designer Dalaun Klaasen has been brought on to consult for a local submission by Audrey Houghton of Remax.

We sat down with Dalaun to learn more about the inspiration behind this piece.

“I wanted to do something different”

Dalaun and Audrey wanted the decorative collaboration to celebrate a specific experience. One that you might remember, that of being a child, waking up to cocoa on Christmas morning.

“I knew the piece had to take advantage of its place within the winery; it needed to showcase a bit of glamour and instill in the viewer a touch of nostalgia”.

This meant that the “Nut-Cracker Prince” tree-topper was important, but that’s not all you’ll notice. The antique french doors seem like they are part of the tree and not just an accessory. However, this was not only a nod to heritage. It celebrates the prestige that Mission-Hill has garnered for itself by pairing these features with the feathers of a peacock. “It’s like your looking through your own window at our gorgeous valley”. The painting behind the piece will pull you right into the living room that a tree decorated with this much love just has to occupy.

Pairing these with the hand-carved childhood alphabet blocks and antique candy canes was important aswell. These minor details will push you towards those cosy feeling you get thinking of a simpler time.
