Fundraiser held for Children’s Hospital

There is going to be a Burger and Beer fundraising event at Finley’s on June 7 from 4 to 8 p.m.

What happens when several Nelsonites get together and decide they want to lend a helping hand to sick children?

The community usually rallies behind the cause to make it a success.

That’s the hope for this week’s Burger and Beer fundraising event at Finley’s on June 7 from 4 to 8 p.m.

Tickets to this event are $15 and all proceeds will go to the BC Children’s Hospital. There will be door prizes, a silent auction and a 50/50 draw as well.

Organizers were thrilled by the support and the generosity of the local businesses that have donated raffle prizes.

Everyone is invited to come out and support those that need the help of the BC Children’s Hospital. It promises to be a good time with great food.

According to one of the organizers, this event was created because everyone knows someone “friends, family, coworkers or neighbors in the area that have needed the BC Children’s Hospital.” They know how important it is to help the hospital by raising money for new equipment and resources that they need to help sick children.

BC Children’s Hospital provides expert care for the most seriously ill or injured children from across BC.
