  • Campaign

Lukas, born and raised in Vernon, spent a few years traveling and working with his partner, before moving to Vancouver. Before long they realized how much they missed home and moved back. Lukas joined a local farm to table catering company, Basket Case Picnics, and Austin now works for High Country Insulation throughout the Okanagan Valley.

They are both very passionate about giving back to the community and had a great time supporting and hosting events with DWTVS dance couples in 2017.


Lukas first learned of NOHS in 2017 when his sister and partner participated in the event. After seeing what an amazing experience it was for them, Lukas and Austin wanted to jump at the chance to do the same.
