Club Projects: New Members' Challenge

President Gord Gamble and the Club’s Board of Directors challenged all new members joining the club in the 2012-13 year to develop a fundraiser and raise $1000 for a local charity. If they did so the club would kick-in another $1000 to the charity of the new members’ choice.

The “newbies” developed a lottery with the proceeds going to the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre. Prizes were solicited from local businesses and comprised, 5 hours of cleaning from Premier Cleaning, at $150 gift certificate for La Perla Restaurant and Limo Service to and from the restaurant courtesy of the Atlantic Funeral Home.

The results were fantastic – they raised $1772!!!!

A draw was made at the June 24th club meeting and the winner of the lottery was Sheila Murphy of Wellington.

On September 9th a cheque for $2772 was presented to Irene Smith who is the Executive Director of the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre
