On January 25th, 2020 we held our 7th annual Australia Day fundraiser. Founded in 2013, the fundraiser is held each Australia Day in support of the community of the Crowsnest Pass and in celebration of the company’s Australian roots. This year, the event was held in support of the York Creek Residents Association to help aid in the purchase of a newer, larger bus for senior citizens.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the community of the Crowsnest Pass and their continued support of Australia Day. A huge thank you to our sponsors, attendees, volunteers and an incredibly generous donation from our owners, Hancock Prospecting Limited, who matched funds raised up to $25,000 bringing the total to an incredible $56,660!
As a separate fundraiser, we partnered with Castle Mountain Resort and donated $1 for each person who skied the hill on Australia Day to aid in the relief of the wildfires that have been raging on in Australia. With proceeds from our Party Table at Australia Day and the Castle Mountain Resort partnership, we are pleased to announce that a total of $4,110 was raised and will be donated to the Australian Red Cross.
Once again, thank you to all the attendees, businesses, volunteers and partners that supported Australia Day again this year!
