Polar Express Fundraising Event a Huge Success

UC Past President Richard Burke (center, in blue), representing Harbourside Rotary, assembles his team as they prepare to provide all attendees with a healthy breakfast.

The Polar Express arrived right on time on Sunday, December 8, 2019 and they had an amazing event.  Kids and their parents arrived at the Royal BC Museum in their PJ’s, enjoyed breakfast, live entertainment and a visit from Father Christmas…all for “Free”.

Because of the generosity of 6 local businesses, “In kind” sponsorship totaled $13,300.00 and covered the entire cost of the event, but for a small royalty fee for the movie.  In addition, 13 more local businesses and fellow Harbourside Rotarians  and friends raised a whopping $15,175.00 cash, to support our school breakfast programs in our communities.   

Thank you for all your donations and support and check out the sponsorship ad in today’s Times Colonist (below) and give a big “Whoo Whoo” whistle to everyone that made this all happen for the kids.
