Congratulations to Andrew Kates - Winner of the OMAHA Jack Koteles Award
Andrew Kates is Kelowna Minor Hockey’s first winner of OMAHA’s Jack Koteles Award. This award goes to an individual or team who show a strong commitment to community service.

He has volunteered for many community events such as the Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and Colitis, the Christmas is Coming benefit concert at the Delta Grand. He helped organize the OKM Car Smash fundraiser which helped donations for the Red Cross fire relief for the people of the Fort McMurray fires.
