Disbursements


OMRA is a non-profit organization whose members volunteer in local community events raising funds for various charities and service groups.  Over the years, thousands of dollars have been dispersed among South Okanagan groups in need.
For years OMRA has volunteered for the Okanagan Similkameen Neurological Society's (OSNS) Harley Davidson raffle fundraiser, transporting and organizing venues to display the bike and ticket sales.
OMRA is also host to the annual South Okanagan Toy Run.  
Annually in November/December, accumulated funds are disbursed.  
OMRA is proud to make a difference in our community.
