Your chance to make a difference in B.C. and the Yukon continues!
Since 2016, the Okanagan Dream Rally has endeavored to positively influence the lives of thousands. Inland and CASE Construction Equipment, alongside our friends at the August Group and Omni.Auto, have joyously participated in this immensely special supercar charity, putting a smile on the faces of children in need—and helping raise more than $1.7 million for the Ronald McDonald House and other local charities.
That number will be shattered in 2022.
This year, the Okanagan Dream Rally intends to raise $1 million for local B.C. charities – with its July 30th event posed to be its biggest ever. This one-of-kind experience will allow children and their families to slide inside supercars and feel a pure track rush. It will deliver high speeds and long-lasting memories.
Inland Truck & Equipment and CASE Construction Equipment wish to join in the fun. We are proud to announce a three-year presenting sponsorship with the Okanagan Dream Rally. We want to see this worthy event thrive, which is why we’ve been working tirelessly to assist with its community causes—including raising money for the Ronald McDonald House of British Columbia and Yukon.
Since November 2021, we have striven to provide the B.C. community with support, launching multiple events (including Toy Drive 2021 and the CON-EXPO Raffle) to deliver much-deserved cheer. We also sought to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House through an exclusive CASE SV185B Skid Steer Auction (pictured above). The auction concluded on March 16, 2022, and earned $81,000.
Through these efforts, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve secured over $191,000 in donations—and we are moving ever closer to our goal of $200,000. Thanks to the generous support of our customers, we have been able to provide hope to local families in need.
And we’re not stopping.
Join as we continue to climb toward our $200,000. Though our CASE SV185B Skid Steer Auction has ended, there are still many ways you can help us bring joy to the B.C. community:

Next up! The CharityDRIVE and the Okanagan Dream Rally
The CharityDRIVE has stepped in to fill the void left by the Dream Rally’s unavoidable absence in 2020. With Ronald McDonald House of British Columbia and Yukon operating as an independent, locally-owned charity, they rely entirely on the support and generosity of our community. And we’re not letting them down.
Thanks to your sensational efforts, we met our initial goal to raise $50,000 for the Ronald McDonald House. Our new goal is $200,000. With your help, we know we’ll succeed—and we’ll work to keep pace with your efforts, too. Here at Inland and CASE Construction Equipment, we donated $10,000 to seed the initiative (and matched donations up to 10 grand), and continue to donate $250 per eligible piece of CASE Construction Equipment sold.
Every donation or CASE Construction Equipment purchase below helps fuel smiles across the faces of B.C.’s youth. Click here to see all qualifying machines as part of this wonderful opportunity to give back to the local community!

Okanagan Dream Rally
The Okanagan Dream Rally is a uniquely special charity event in Kelowna, B.C., one committed to helping area youth in need. Each of the very special children involved in the Dream Rally are “co-pilots,” thoughtfully paired up with drivers for a special day in the passenger seat of one of more than 200 scintillating dream supercars. The event is dedicated to providing unforgettable memories to the kids and their families–and to raising money for the Okanagan Valley that will leave a long-lasting, indelible mark on the community. For more information, visit their website.
August Family Foundation
The August Family Foundation was founded in 2015 with the ambitious goal of raising $1,000,000 over the course of five years for local charities and those in need. The August Family, an Okanagan family with a rich history in both business and charity, created this goal unanimously as the cornerstone of the foundation. With such a deep connection in their loyal community spanning over the past 75 years, it seemed a fitting opportunity to return the support and respect that they themselves had received. The August Family Foundation began small but has flourished into so many amazing events; however, none as spectacular as the Okanagan Dream Rally. For more information, visit their website.
Ronald McDonald House Charities BC & Yukon
The first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia, PA, USA, in 1974, designed to aid parents in need and afford them the opportunity to stay close to their hospitalized child. This goal of facilitating family-centered care has since spread around the world, gifting families a quiet respite in their most trying times, all without saddling them with hotel and food expenses. The Ronald McDonald House B.C. and Yukon continues that critical tradition today, providing support and accommodation for families of sick children as they travel to Vancouver for life-saving treatment. For more information, visit their website.
Omni.Auto’s diverse team of specialists is disrupting the sales and marketing space. Its proprietary technology platform, innovative websites, and peerless OmniChannel marketing techniques are guiding some of today’s largest Canadian companies, including FCA, CASE Construction Equipment, and Alfa Romeo. Like CEO Brent Marshall’s other companies, Omni.Auto leads by example, donating a large percentage of profits to charity each year. For more information, visit their website.
