Preschool girls raise cash, food at their ‘Foodrazer’ in Surrey

WHALLEY — It wasn’t all fun and games at the "Foodrazer" event hosted by preschoolers Ryley Patterson and Chloe Gravel-Fallis.

The girlfriends raised more than $220 and close to 400 pounds of food for Surrey Food Bank. 

The event, held in partnership with the Downtown Surrey BIA, was held Saturday (July 25) at the A&W restaurant on 102nd Avenue in Surrey.

The kids planned a variety of games and Dr. Michael Wilson, their friend from Phoenix Society whose volunteer Red Shirts were there to help, came out and won a ribbon by putting a puzzle together. He also joined them in a zumba dance. 

“It’s so important to support youth that have such a passion,” Wilson said. 

Their policeman friend, Josh Waltman, attended with his daughter, Norah, 2. 

“We wouldn’t miss it,” said Waltman. “Norah loves playing with Chloe and Ryley.”

Children who stopped by participated in the duck pond game, the sucker pull and the "ping pong ball in a glass" game to win prizes. They also got to make some crafts and have their faces painted, all activities planned by Ryley, 5, and Chloe, 3.

Also, people were invited to drop off their old car seats so they wouldn’t be left by the side of the road. More than 30 car seats were collected and prepared for recycling.
