Success by 6 raises funds for BC Children’s Hospital

Thank you to all of the families that attended Success By 6's Family Dance and Fun Night event at Raft River Elementary

Thank you to all of the families that attended Success By 6’s Family Dance and Fun Night event at Raft River Elementary on Nov. 16. Your generosity is overwhelming; we raised $1,045.

Our Success By 6 community table met on Tuesday, Nov. 27 to distribute the money between BC Children’s Hospital “Be a Superhero” campaign, and our local project to create a service directory and trust fund for local families who are accessing BC Children’s Hospital.

Cake decorating winners were Laura Bond (1st), Shirley de Vooght (2nd), and Trina PInksen (3rd). Safety Mart, Strawberry Moose and Carol Pastorek contributed to the event.

Volunteers included Kerry Milner Cairns, Cindy Wilgosh, Susanne Butcher and children Annie and Ben, Mike Bowden, Tammy Whelen and daughter Eliana Bromley, Ross Wilson and son Lochlan, Phil and Cindy Janicki, Jean Bonner, Christy Vandenborre, Loxley and Kendall from Clearwater Secondary School, and Karly Christian, our DJ from CSS.

The concession was run by Wells Gray After School Program children and staff members Terra Leier, Tanya Chapman and Linda Brown. Building Blocks Daycare ran the cake walk with help from staff members Georgina Leppky, Michelle Baker, Keli Bjorkman and all the families that baked the cakes.

Many families submitted stories that were compiled in a beautiful slideshow by Jamie Fisher at Yellowhead Community Services to highlight the local children attending BC Children’s Hospital.

 

It was our first attempt at this type of event and we look forward to hosting a similar fundraiser next year where we can build on what worked and learn from where we can improve. Success By 6 is always looking for new involvement in our community table and volunteers for our events.  To learn more about Success By 6 in our community and how you can get involved, call Heather Adamson at 250-674-2600 or email heather.a@yellowheadcs.ca.
