Dining Out for Literacy

For another year, Bai Tong Restaurant in downtown Kelowna, will host a major fundraising event for Project Literacy Kelowna.

The Story

In 2004, Jamjit and Kitti Karunyasopon, who had arrived from Thailand with limited English skills, were referred to Project Literacy.  Working with our Education Coordinators and a tutor, the couple learned English and also received support in adjusting to life in a new community.  Jamjit and Kitti opened Bai Tong in 2006 and the restaurant has received accolades for its exceptional, authentic Thai food.  In 2007, they became proud Canadian citizens. Kitti and Jamjit have always been grateful for the help and support they received from Project Literacy so in 2012, they came up with the idea for a unique fundraiser that benefits those in the community who continue to receive literacy support.

The Details

This year’s Dining Out for Literacy event has started and will run until January 31, 2017.  Purchase a $10.00 voucher in advance of your next meal at the Bai Tong Restaurant (275 Bernard Avenue) and you will be supporting adult learners in our community.
