BBBS of Quesnel has big fundraisers coming up in June

Big Brothers Big Sisters writes about Golf for Kids’ Sake and a brand new fundraising event

It’s par-tee time!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel (BBBSQ) is excited to announce that Golf for Kids Sake will be taking place on June 1, 2019. This is the 13th year that BBBSQ will host the fundraiser and the second year that BBBSQ will be partnering with CIBC Financial Services.

The fun-filled day will be hosted by the Quesnel Golf Course with a dinner and silent auction to follow. Registration is $75.00 per person (or by collecting pledges) and includes dinner – there will also be incentive prizes for collecting pledges.

All funds raised from this event will stay local to benefit our community.

We also have an exciting new fundraising event called Kiss-a-Pig, which runs from May 15 to June 15. Members of the community are asked to vote on which “kiss-ee” they would like to see kiss the pig. They vote by putting money in the jars: spare change, big bills, etc. The one with the most money must Kiss the Pig.

We have 5 participants (or potential kiss-ees). Each potential kiss-ee is represented by a collection jar at a different locations. The jars will be as follows:

Coralee Oaks (MLA) — Booster Juice

Jason Parlby (Employee) — Tireland

Cindy Osip (Quesnel Victim Services) — CIBC

Denis Hawkins-Bogle (Principal) — Correlieu High School

Duane Schultz (The Goat/Cariboo Country) — Integris

Watch Hank the Pig take a leisurely stroll down Reid Street waiting for the lucky (or unlucky) contestant to give him a big smooch on the smackers. Thank you in advance for helping us sustain and expand our services! Watch our Facebook for videos and photos of the kissing event.
