Air Miles to help raise funds for multi-centre

The committee plans to use Air Miles to purchase items that can be used as prizes for different community events and activities

The North Cariboo Multi-Centre Fundraising Committee is trying a new program in order to raise funds and prizes for the fundraising campaign.

“We feel that establishing an Air Miles account for the fundraising campaign will provide us the opportunity to collect air miles on any purchasing that the fundraising campaign does,” Eric Wickham, Chair of the Fundraising Committee explained.

“More importantly, it provides the opportunity for local community members and local businesses to donate their air miles to the fundraising campaign through the transfer process that Air Miles has established.”

The committee plans on using air miles to purchase items that can be used as prizes for different community events and activities.

“Through the fundraising process we frequently ask community members and businesses to provide financial support,”  Wickham added.

“This program provides another means by which businesses and individuals can support the efforts of the fundraising committee.”

The North Cariboo Multi-Centre Fundraising Campaign Air Miles number is 8008 639 1070. Community members are encouraged to use this number when shopping at a business that supports the Air Miles program. Cards can also be provided to those individuals and businesses that would use one.

The North Cariboo Multi-Centre will be a modern facility designed to replace aging infrastructure. It features a 1,600-seat NHL-sized arena, a 450-seat performing arts theatre and accompanying event and assembly space.
