Shopping bags for Multi-Centre fundraiser

Reusable shopping bags are on offer to help raise funds for multi-centre

Reusable shopping bags, cake slices, an art mural, building and room naming rights; each of these pieces are part of the community fundraising plans for the North Cariboo Multi-Centre Fundraising Campaign.

But right now, the campaign is focused on selling the reusable shopping bags. This campaign helps support the building of the multi-centre and also gives those who buy one a chance to win $2,000 in travel vouchers with Flight Centre Quesnel.

Teams of North Cariboo Multi-Centre boosters will be around town on Friday Sept. 7 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. selling the reusable bags. The teams will be at the BC Liquor Store on Reid Street, Bliss Restaurant on Anderson Drive in West Quesnel and at Walmart.

Bags are also available regularly at the North Cariboo Multi-Centre headquarters at 339A Reid St., City Hall, the Arts and Recreation Centre and the Visitor Centre.

More information about all of the fundraising efforts is available at

The North Cariboo Multi-Centre will be a modern facility designed to replace the 62-year-old arena and aging theatre infrastructure.  It will feature a 1,600 seat NHL-sized arena, a 450-seat performing arts theatre and accompanying event and assembly area.
