Thanks to the generosity and compassion of people as yourself, our fund raiser at the Army and Navy in Sidney, on September 26, was an enormous success. The silent auction was very popular with many bids to or over value.

Our mandate is to help people with limited income to help with their vet bills. We thank you on behalf of our clients and their pet. As you are aware, having a pet is critical for the well being of many individuals who may be physically or mentally compromised.

Finally a heartfelt thank you from all the volunteers at Balfour’s Friends Foundation. This was another important step forward in our fund raising efforts.”

Victoria Canoe and Kayak Club: “Wake up the Gorge” Event
“On behalf of the Victoria Canoe and Kayak Club, and all the participants of the “Wake up the Gorge” event, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you and your organization for your outstanding generosity. Through your support, we were able to provide an excellent showcase of unique draw prizes to the participants, and the volunteers of this event.

I am delighted to inform you that the race was an absolute success. We had many paddlers participating in the various events who came from the mainland, Up Island and, of course Victoria. The weather was sunny which significantly added to the intangible experience of canoe racing on the beautiful Gorge waterway.

Adding to the unique experience were the many outstanding draw prizes. I am happy to say that many of the paddlers and volunteers who were in attendance went home with a prize. Due to the generous support of sponsors such as yourself we were able to provide people with a memorable and fun paddling experience. Your support helps us to continue with events such as this, which bring together paddlers, and help canoe racing to prosper in Victoria.”
