‘Goliath’ scores big funds

Editor:

I was watching the TV news one morning last week, and heard about the BC Liberal gala, $400 per person fundraiser, with approximately 1,800 people in attendance. Wow, that’s quite a score.

It kinds of put into perspective the fundraiser we hosted for the BC Conservative candidate, Rick Manuel, who is running in Fort Langley-Aldergrove.

We had an awesome turnout (at least 80 people) who paid $20 each at a barbecue. We also had a silent auction which was very well supported.

I am sure you can figure out we didn’t make the big bucks the Liberals did, but we had a wonderful bunch of people looking for a change. Thank you to all who came out to support Rick. He will work hard for us. Yea David, boo Goliath.
