Once again, BMN showed how to keep the _fun_ in fundraising. Our December silent auction — together with the bake, book, and seasonal greenery sales — raised $1,910.94. This will be donated to the “Critter Care Wildlife Society”:http://www.crittercarewildlife.org/index.php in Langley, with a very small portion being held back to support the operating costs of our club. _Critter Care_ is one of only four bear rehabilitation centres in BC, and they have experienced a bumper year for orphaned black bear cubs.
We are grateful to the many members who donated (and bought!) items, and to the following businesses for their generous gifts for the auction tables:
* Backyard Bird Centre (Port Moody)
* Bosley’s Pet Food Plus (Coquitlam)
* Build-a-Bear Workshop (Coquitlam)
* Gerry’s Vintners (Burquitlam)
* Hungry Hound Pet Store (Sapperton)
* Lassthetic Salon and Spa (Coquitlam)
* Rhodos Kouzina Mediterranean Grille (Port Moody)
Please support these local businesses during the year ahead.
