Aldergrove delivers cash to BC Children’s Hospital
On January 31 members of the Aldergrove Business Association’s board of directors brought a special delivery — a large cheque — to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The Aldergrove community raised almost $6,000 for the hospital at last fall's Wall-O-Lanterns event.
Each year in October the Aldergrove Business Association hosts its annual Wall-O-Lantern event. For the past two years the event has been held in the parking lot of All Season’s Garden Centre, which has brought many local families out for a exciting day of pumpkin carving, entertainment, and children’s activities.
Each year the Aldergrove Business Association is proud to choose and partner with a local charity that has an impact in our community. This year the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation was the chosen charity.
“It gives us great pleasure to give back to such a worthy cause” said Bruce Heslop, president of the Aldergrove Business Association. In total we raised $5,725 at the Wall-O-Lanterns which was presented to members of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation by Raymond VanBugnum (All Seasons Garden Centre) and Jody Henderson (Greater Vancouver Zoo).
