Success By 6 plans dance for children hospital

Success By 6 is hosting "Be A Superhero" Family Dance and Fun Night on Friday, Nov. 16,

Editor, The Times:

Success By 6 is hosting “Be A Superhero” Family Dance and Fun Night on Friday, Nov. 16, from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Raft River Elementary School gym.

This event is a fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital and to develop a local service directory for families needing to travel to BC Children’s Hospital. Admission will be by donation, with a minimum $5 donation per family.

Games, crafts, relays, concession, “dance offs”, and much more will be a part of the evening. Please bring your spare change to enter mini-contests and win prizes!

A focus of the evening will be highlighting the real heroes of our community – the children. Families whose children access BC Children’s Hospital for any type of treatment/service, or have needed to in the past, are being asked to submit a photo of their child and a few sentences about their connection to BC Children’s Hospital to be included in a slide show for the event. Local childcare programs and classrooms are collecting the photos and information, or families may email Heather Adamson directly at heather.a@yellowheadcs.ca.

The main fundraiser of the evening will be our community cake decorating contest and auction! Bake and decorate a cake to be judged by our “Real Heroes” children judges!

Each cake will be auctioned off through the night, and there will be prizes for first, second and third place. There will be an entry fee of $25 per person or $100 per team who enter a decorated cake (cupcakes may be substituted).

We hope to see participation from all areas of our community – families, businesses, service groups, local government, etc. for this fundraising event!

For more information, or to enter your name or team’s name in the cake-decorating contest, please phone or email Heather Adamson, Success By 6 coordinator, at 250-674-2600 or heather.a@yellowheadcs.ca
