Quesnel Community Foundation is happy to

announce they have achieved the $50,000 match.

That achievement is thanks in part to donations

such as the $1,000 management and staff of Fraser

River GM who have been long time contributors

to the foundation endowment. Left to right are:

Bob Lebeck, president of QCF, Fraser River staff Gail

Nickerson, Kyle Webb, Matt Maglio, and manager,

Shane Thon. The current contribution balance is in

the $60,000 range and cheques are still coming in.

That means the endowment will grow by at least

$110,000. “I want to say a big thank-you to the people

of Quesnel and area for their generous support,”

Lebeck said. “Naturally, cheques (or shares, stocks,

etc) are welcome at any time. Some people have

left legacy donations in their wills. It’s really very

exciting for the area.”
