The Sharon Amos Legacy Fund for the Arts was created to provide financial assistance to individuals seeking education in Music and Arts.
If you have lived in Penticton for any length of time you have most likely been affected by the energy and vision of Sharon Amos. Tragically lost on January 14, 2010, Sharon was truly a force of nature.
After enjoying a very successful career as a marketing executive in Victoria, Vancouver, and Edmonton, Sharon retired to Penticton in 1998 with her husband, Ben Amos.
As was her habit, she immediately set about changing things for the better. This included spearheading the effort to save Okanagan Lake Park from commercial development, chairing Penticton’s Centennial Advisory Committee, and founding Many Hats Theatre Company, for which she acted and produced on many occasions.
Considering the legacy that Sharon has left in her passing, it is only fitting that the Rotary Club of Penticton should initiate a Legacy Fund in her name, to which many citizens of Penticton have already contributed.
