Friends of the Kootenay’s Give Back Sunday
Friends of the Kootenay (located in the Radium Visitor Centre) will receive 15% of this Sunday’s food sales at the Horsethief Creek Pub.
“As a volunteer, charitable, non-profit organization, the Friends of Kootenay National Park Association is dedicated to the protection, appreciation, education and understanding of the cultural and natural history of Kootenay National Park and its surrounding ecosystem, the Columbia River Valley.”
The Friends of the Kootenay supports the Junior Naturalist Program, Wild Voices Speaker Series, Sponsor a Bighorn Program, Knapweed Pull, Head Banger Trail Challenge Fund Raiser, Headbanger Tours, and more.
Our give back Sunday program each week donates 15% of that Sunday’s food sales to a local charity, not for profit, or local fundraising effort.
The Horsethief Pub is proud to partner with local charities, not for profits, or local fundraising efforts for many Sundays through the year. Groups holding a Give Back Sunday at the Horsethief receive 15% of our food sales as a donation to their organization.
When selecting groups to partner with, we work local. We are looking to support groups here in the Columbia Valley as our way of giving back to the community that supports us through the year. We get far more requests for participation than we are able to accommodate, so we narrow it down based on the success of past participation, on immediate need, and on a group’s ties in the Columbia Valley.
Participating groups are encouraged to have fun with their assigned week! In the past groups have organized silent auctions, bands or other entertainers, or had a volunteer on site to collect donations or sign up members. We have found that the more an organization puts in to promoting their Sunday, the larger the donation we are able to make.
If you represent a group that would like to partner with the Horsethief Pub for a Give Back Sunday, please send an email to Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Venue & Village

The Village of Radium Hot Springs is a peaceful mountain village in British Columbia’s Columbia Valley in the heart of the Kootenay Mountain Ranges. Only 2h45m West of Calgary, Radium Hot Springs borders on Kootenay National Park.
While visiting Radium, stay with one of our many boutique accommodators, and plan on visiting the Radium Hot Springs Pools, the new Zipline, one of the great courses on the Columbia Valley Golf Trail, or this list of many other things to do.
