'The Breath of Life'

Our most recent event benefiting the BC Lung Association called 'The Breath of Life' was a great success. The evening of entertainment included some top notch local talent including Big Black Dog, Coastal Sound Chamber Choir and many more amazing performers.

We are indebted to all those who gave their time to contribute to the cause. All the performers, our motivational speakers Mark Masongsong and Ash Dhanani, as well as local businesses who contributed silent auction items and the many friends and family members who prepared goods for the bake sale!

Katrina van Bylandt and Scott McDonald from the Lung Association came to show their support as well as to deliver our great new biking jerseys.

Now we'll really look like a team out there!

Shark's Club Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who made it down to our first organized fundraiser at Shark Club on April 22nd. The event was a huge success - we all had a great time and raised some much needed cash to support our fundraising ride across Canada. Jennica's birthday was the very same day so we had even more reason to celebrate.

Despite mother natures significant attempts against our plans, our fundraising Garage Sale turned out well. As rookies in this cut throat market we quickly got used to haggling, but many people became more generous once they knew all proceeds were for the Lung Association!

Finally, stay tuned for details for our Farewell Burger and Beer Event! We're looking at the afternoon of June 4th to get all well-wishers out for one last shin-dig. Tickets will be $12 and include a burger, beer and good times! More to follow soon.

Remember online donations are welcome 24 hours a day - just click the link that says 'D-O-N-A-T-E' on the panel on the right! Thanks =)
