Quincy & Tracey have helped bring the magical experience of meeting Santa to a sensory-friendly enviornment for families living with loved ones on the Autism Spectrum in the Okanagan for 7 years. The Vreckos partner with Autism Okanagan to bring this special experience to the Okanagan.
Sensitive Santa has been an important event to the Vrecko family as they know how difficult and at times unattainable for children living with sensory sensitivities to have a visit with Santa. The teamwork of Quincy and Tracey with Autism Okanagan have made the magical moments of meeting Santa available in an atmosphere that is sensory-friendly.
Dude’s Day out
The Vrecko Real Estate Group was the proud title sponsor for the Autism Okanagan’s Dude’s Day out Golf tournament. An event to celebrate the men in the autism community. The event brought fathers, uncles, brothers and friends who help support a child living with autism. The initiative was in line with The Vrecko Real Estate Group’s goal to improve the quality of life for individuals and families living with autism. It was a memorable day with a lot of fun-filled competitions and activities.
