Special Fund Raising Update

Denis Moore (and his agent Dave L'Heureux) have put together a special fundraising program for 2017 that will support Wheels for Hope; the same charity that our biennial Sail for Hope supports.

Donate on-line by clicking here or give a cheque to Dave L'Heureux or Carla Nicolson (ensure your full name and address are on the cheque). All donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt.

All funds raised go to support the Regional Wheels for Hope Program, a critical transportation service for those who have no other way of getting to lifesabing cancer treatment. 

Drum Roll Please....to date, over $3000 has been raised. The recent contribution by Heather Reid and the JAZ Single Handed Race put the amount over this milestone when they raised $560 for the Local Wheels for Hope Program and the resultant transformation of Denis Moore!

So, let's keep the wheels turning. Donate today for a full tax receipt, support a great program and help Denis reconnect with his inner Tom Selleck. The new Denis Moore will be 'revealed' at the TYC End of Season Banquet on October 14th.
