With your support E.B. Horsman & Son (EBH) was able to present BC Children’s Hospital with a cheque for $50,000 at their June telethon. Over the course of 18 years, with the generosity of our staff, customers and suppliers, we have been able to donate $505,906.
Your participation in EBH events and raffles around the province is the key to our fundraising success. Some of this year’s successful fundraisers included: the Vernon hockey pool, in which Darrel Kilmartin and the EBH Vernon branch staff raised $1,760 for the kids; Jeff Janzen’s (Penticton) annual Nascar pool that raised $845; Tom Wittal and the Williams Lake Jeans Day BBQ that brought in $1,461 in donations; and the poker tournament that Cory Evans held in Campbell River raised $1,205 again this year.
On Jeans Day alone, your support in our branch BBQs raised over $6,800.
The funds raised go straight to BC Children’s Hospital and are used to support everything from the acquisition of life-saving equipment to the groundbreaking pediatric research into cures and better treatments for many devastating childhood diseases. Your donations help to ensure that the most precious members of our society – our children – receive the best possible care.
Thank you for supporting our fundraising efforts over the years and we look forward to working with you in 2012 and 2013 to make this another successful Children’s Hospital fundraising year.
President, E.B. Horsman & Son
