Annual Co-operative BBQ Donation Made

June 7th saw sunshine, great weather, and a great turnout for the Annual Co-operative BBQ in front of the Lake Country Co-op Marketplace. 

Every year Lake Country Co-op partners with the Prince Albert branches of Affinity Credit Union, Conexus Credit Union, Diamond North Credit Union, The Co-operators, and Children's Choice Child Development Centres to host this community BBQ, with the proceeds to be donated to a local charity. There was bounce houses, mascots, and face painting to keep the whole family entertained! 

$3,662 was raised, and it was donated to the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the Victoria Hospital. The room was established to provide a more home-like space for families who want to stay close to their sick children who are being treated at the Victoria Hospital, including showers, laundry facilities, kitchen access, community pantry, even fresh baking that is made available throughout the day. All staffed by friendly volunteers.
