Sweets for the SPCA

Quesnel businesses raised more than $2,000 to help local animals last week.

As of Monday, March 4, Treat Week has raised $2,184.20 for the Quesnel SPCA.

Eleven local businesses took part in the fundraiser, selling baked goods in support of the BC SPCA throughout the week, including AC&D Insurance, Fraser River Chevrolet, Quesnel Toyota, CF Diesel Tire, Quesnel SPCA, Q Fitness, Barkerville Brewing Co., Lil Red Pony Feed and Supplies, D’Arcy’s Glass, Quesnel City Hall and City of Quesnel Public Works Department.

AC&D Insurance was the top fundraiser, donating $639.60 after the business matched public donations. The second-highest fundraiser was Fraser River Chevrolet, which donated $551.80.

Treat Week is an expanded version of the BC SPCA’s previous Cupcake Day fundraiser, which last year raised $1,000 for the Quesnel SPCA.
