More than $ 60,000 col­lec­ted

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

The CFB Ba­got­ville Cha­ri­ty Fund cam­pai­gn was a huge suc­cess again in 2018, co­ming in with more than $ 60,000 which puts this year in the top three most rai­sed funds in the past ten years.

Last year was a re­cord year so the so­li­ci­tors knew they had to work hard to beat it!

By cros­sing the $ 60,000 mark in 2018, the Cha­ri­ty Fund team keeps the an­nual ave­rage at a ve­ry high le­vel.

The most suc­cess­ful ac­ti­vi­ties were the CF- 18 shoo­ting com­pe­ti­tion, which rai­sed $ 12,700 and the tra­di­tio­nal EME tire cli­nic which rai­sed more than $ 4,500; al­most $ 400 more than in 2017.

Do­na­tions this year al­so sur­pri­sin­gly in­crea­sed by al- most $ 1,700 sur­pas­sing the $ 5,500 in 2018.

Mem­bers de­ployed to Ro­ma­nia at the mo­ment, al­so contri­bu­ted their way this year by rai­sing more than $ 2,000 in the Ter­ry Fox Run.

The CFB Ba­got­ville Cha­ri­ty Fund Cam­pai­gn was foun­ded in 1966. Un­like the Base Fund, which is de­di­ca­ted so­le­ly to the wel­fare of the mem­bers, the Cha­ri­ty Fund has its own Board of Di­rec­tors which eva­luates grant ap­pli­ca­tions ac­cor­ding to well- es­ta­bli­shed cri­te­ria.

Eve­ry year, the Cha­ri­ty Fund do­nates near­ly as much do­na­tions to lo­cal cha­ri­ties as is rai­sed du­ring the fun­drai­sing cam­pai­gn, pro­ving that there are ma­ny lo­cal needs.
