Fundraising through fun

Local businesses help Reach Child and Youth Development Society pay for new centre in Ladner.

Thanks to a sponsorship from Terminal Systems Inc. (TSI), more than 200 people attended Reach Child and Youth Development Society’s Family Fun Day and Annual General Meeting recently.

Highlights of the event, titled Making Magic Happen, included a magician, bouncy castle, a Delta Gymnastics tumbling centre and a silent auction featuring more than 50 items donated by local businesses.

“We’re so pleased with the large turnout, which included some of the 800 children we serve annually and their families, as well as our many supporters, volunteers, directors and staff,” said Reach Society President Rob VanSpronssen.

More than $6,000 was raised, and funds will be directed to the Building for Children Together capital campaign, which is raising $4 million to build a new child development centre in Ladner.
