Philippine Fundraiser a Success
At a recent Resident Council meeting, the residents decided that they would like to contribute to the Philippines disaster relief effort happening around the world. It was decided that they would fund the ingredients to make pancakes for a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser.
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 was the day that decision was put into high gear! Resident, Perle Shavers seen here, helped with the pancake fundraiser by collecting money. Other residents were involved with the event as well and enjoyed eating pancakes. We raised $903.00 in just three short hours. These dollars will be sent to the Canadian Red Cross where the Canadian government will match this donation dollar for dollar for a total of $1,806.00!
Residents, staff, Board members, managers, volunteers and family members attended, all willing to pay their $5.00 for admittedly delicious fresh pancakes. Also included was a selection of syrup, strawberries or whip cream with coffee or juice. Many passed on the pancakes and just made generous donations.
It felt good to contribute to such a worthwhile cause. This tragedy affected so many of our co-workers and friends. The event provided an opportunity to get together, enjoy a good breakfast, and raise money for a good cause. It was a win-win for everyone who attended.
