Generosity of Business Community Seen at NSBA Luncheon
Each year in December the NSBA membership gathers together for the Annual Children’s Wish Luncheon Fundraiser. This year the event received over 50 donations available for raffle prizes, and live and silent auction items.
Fundraising efforts also include a 50/50 draw as well as several cash donations from businesses who are members of the NSBA. All the proceeds from 50/50, prizes, and donations will go to helping grant a child with a life-threatening illness’s wish. This is also the first year where cash donations will be given directly to the Children’s Wish Foundation as a result of the NSBA’s fundraising and awareness efforts.
These cash donation have been received from Wade Peckham with Enterprise Holdings (the 50/50 winner) donated back $300 of his winnings, Cowan Graphics for $100, Glass Doctor of Saskatoon for $259 raised at their exclusive hole contest at the NSBA Golf Classic in May, and notably Kodiak Centre in the amount of $2000.
“Imperium Developments, on behalf of the Kodiak Centre, is honored to support the Children’s Wish Foundation help young ones realize their heartfelt dreams.” Says Mike Butler, Development Manager, Kodiak Center.
The NSBA has hosted this annual fundraising luncheon for over 10 years and is proud of the efforts of the Saskatoon Business community. “We are continually blown away by the generosity of our membership and their support of the Children’s Wish Foundation,” said Keith Moen, Executive Director of the NSBA. “This is routinely one of our best attended luncheons and we are proud of the partnership with the Children’s Wish Foundation that makes it possible.”
With the NSBA’s efforts in combination with cash donations from members, Children’s Wish Foundation – Saskatchewan Chapter will receive $7,750.50 as a result of the business community’s fundraising efforts on December 12, 2018.
