We had close to 600 people in attendance. As usual, the generosity of our community and beyond, takes one’s breath away. Our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors, ReMax, Scotiabank, Quality Foods, to those with tables at the event, Maureen Scoville face painting, Roy Hancliff Photography, Tsolum River Restoration Society, Comox Valley Nature and the great music provided by Steve and Vivian Ruskin.

We were so proud to open up the centre and involve all of you in what we do and what we have been able to accomplish through hard work, cooperation and generosity. Proceeds were just over $4.000 which will be such a big help with feedings and medical supplies for our many patients. I cannot give enough praise to all the volunteers and staff who came together to make this event happen and a sincere thank you to everyone who took time out of their day to join us.
