Because of YOU!

$8,805.20 raised for two local charities

DATE: Saturday, May 7, 2016       LOCATION: the Okanagan College
May 7, 2016 - we took a risk and it all worked just fine.  The organizers were admittedly nervous about leaving the supportive Piccadilly Mall but the Okanagan College made it totally work for us.  The staff were so helpful.  The end result:  60+ women were lined up before the doors opened  and they shopped, shopped and shopped some more. There were smiles and laughter as women exited with big, pink bags full of treasures.  As always, we could not have done it without the many, many people who get involved out of the kindness of their hearts.

The Drop Box locations:  InView Optical at the Mall at Piccadilly, RBC on Alexander Street, and Brooke Downs Vennard llp and out in Sorrento for the first time - SASCU

The Promotions team:  A Flower Shop, Barley Station, Blue Canoe, L'Originals Gallery, Shuswap Bliss, Shuswap Clothing & Shoe Company, Tangles Hair Salon, and The Urban Think Tank, the super support of the Salmar and the amazing team at EZ-Rock.

The Donor Prize Sponsors:  A Flower Shop, Colleen Cody-Rupp (Bead Artist), Penny Colton (Prize winning photographer), Girls Gone Green, Lash Addict, the Salmar (again so super!), Nico's Nurseryland, Northern Plastics, Salmar Theatre, and Shuswap Bliss.

Location Donation: Okanagan College - Salmon Arm campus and the very kind security service from Salmon Arm Security

The Hardworking Team that puts it all together:  Dawn Alstad, Deanna Connelly, Angel Aggasiz, Maureen Farnham, Toni Klein, Lynda Mason, Vanessa Starkell, and Coralie Tolley.

The extra Volunteers:  thank you ladies (and gentlemen) - you made it all possible.

To any business or individual I have missed, sorry, it is my aging memory.  Thank you sincerely to ALL of you.

Technical difficulties :  sorry but the photographer had some technical difficulties and the camera phone was not reliable (this is why we used crayons when we were 5).  Pictures of purse winners and donor prize winners didn't work out as planned but we thank you all for letting us take your pictures anyways.
