In the last week of 2020, our Benevolent fund and Association made donations to three organizations.
Prior to the pandemic, we held a car wash for Camp Bucko (BUrn Camp for Kids in Ontario) and we also received a donation from our brothers and sisters of Chicago Fire, who last summer stopped in Oakville on their Ignite The Spirit Ride. They wanted to make a donation to our benevolent fund after we had a chat about Camp Bucko.
With their donation of $500 and our profits from the car wash, we were able to donate $3078.07 to Camp Bucko.
We also held a few events in 2019 and 2020, partnering with the Oakville Blades, fundraising for SickKids Foundation. We were pleased to be able to donate $2,000.94 to SickKids. Big thanks to the Oakville Blades organization for all their help!
In October 2020, we created a "Breast Cancer Awareness" mask to sell to our members. Sales were overwhelming and we sold out our supply in 4 days! We raised $1,114.08 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Thanks to all our members who purchased a mask.
