(June 3, 2019 – Vancouver, B.C.) Save-On-Foods, on behalf of its generous customers, team members and supplier and business partners, presented an amazing $2.1 million to BC Children’s Hospital at the annual Miracle Weekend Telethon.
The grand total represents another
year of successful fundraising through store-led initiatives, such as
barbecues, hot dog sales, and pie throwing; and corporate initiatives,
including the Round Up for Kids campaign, where customers can round up their bill
to the nearest dollar and donate the difference, and the Save-On-Foods Charity
Golf Tournament, which raised $613,831 in one day.
Save-On-Foods has supported BC
Children’s Hospital for more than 30 years and has donated more than $30
million to the hospital.
“Every year I am inspired by the
outstanding support Save-On-Foods team members, customers, suppliers and
business partners show for BC Children’s Hospital,” said Save-On-Foods
president Darrell Jones. “Because of the Save-On-Foods community, our company
is able to donate millions of dollars to this amazing organization and help
children and families from across the province get the care they need. I am so
grateful for the heart our people put into fundraising and am so proud to
present this cheque on behalf of all of them.”
