WE GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS!

What an incredible day! We had over 150 cars drive thru our event! Thank you so much to everyone who came to our event and supported the donation drive! We received an amazing amount of donations!
     
First off…a huge thank you to the wonderful ladies from Revera Inc. Edmonton! They showed up bright and early to help with set up, donated the use of 3 tents for our donation stations, handed out goodies and worked right along with us greeting people, handing out raffle tickets and do anything needed to help us make the event the success it was.
   
The Minister of Seniors & Housing Josephine Pon arrived early in the day to hand out gift bags and say “hi” to everyone.

Our MP Kelly McCauley and his amazing team also came early, ready to help, directing traffic to the shred-it station and handing out bags of goodies.

Our MLA Jon Carson was also on hand to help us out and even brought some donations for the Inner City Pet Food Bank!

 

People arrived bright and early for the event! The sun stayed our for half the day!  Chef Stu and our Executive Director Haidong Liang were greeting attendees and handing our our yummy Eggs-emplary Egg Bowls!  We were also selling tickets to our latest fundraiser…our Summer Basket Of Fun!

 

   

Our in house photography Thomas manned the photo booth today!  3 attendees were driving Kia Souls…Look…we have a lot of “soul” at our event today!!
We got hit by massive amount of rain but that didn’t stop the ladies from Revera who simply grabbed their umbrellas and continued to greet people!

 

We would also like to thank HelpAge Canada for their generous gift to support our WeSeniors Deliver Happiness 3.0 initiative and Alberta Seniors Week.
