Another Business Comes Through!!

I went over to Canso Ford today to accept a cheque for the Drive 4 UR Community Fundraising event that was held this summer. I was surprised to find that Canso Ford and all of their staff, had decided to further support the community park project by donating an additional $3000. I was speechless. Thank you all so very much for this very thoughtful and generous donation.

Here is what we've been waiting for. I am extremely happy to say that we have essentially reached our target of $220,000 today with NuStar Energy coming through in a big way with a huge donation of $10,000. This is amazing and it just goes to show how dedicated our businesses and our residents are to this town. Thank you so much NuStar Energy for your extremely generous support. To add to this, not only did they donate $10,000 to this project they are also showing up on build day with a group of employees to work as a team on build day. Can you say dedication. I am so proud of this community right now. Now all we need is for all of the volunteers that have signed up for build day to make sure you show up with tools and ready to work. WOW! WOW! WOW!

During the last Granville Green concert series the Port Hawkesbury Community Park project committee sold 50/50 tickets through out the show.  At the end of the night the winning ticket was drawn.  The winner was Alex Whitty.  The prize was for $260.  Alex then graciously donated the full amount back to the Community Park Project.  A very special Thank You to Alex.  Included in the picture below are some of the committee members as well as some of the kids that helped out that night.  It is always nice when someone finds it in their heart to donate to a great cause such as this.

Fund Raising Goal

Hi Everyone,  

I decided to tally up our donations so far.  This includes our Cash Donations, our In-kind donations and as well as the HST rebate. This totals up to $101,100.  Wow we are getting close.  Thank you to everyone for your support so far and lets keep it going.  We need to reach our goal of $215,000 which is a combination of cash and in-kind donations.  We are well on our way.

THANK YOU LARRY MACKEIGAN and TRI-MAC TOYOTA for your generous donation of $3000. We are getting there folks. It is the generosity of businesses and residents like this that will make this project successful. Thank you again. All the donations do not have to be $3000, every donation gets us that much closer. As we have said in the past, if you are planning on donating to this great community project, then please do so now. It is very important with only 33 days left that we get all of our funds in order. Larry is also challenging the businesses out there to help make our community a better place.
