BC Children’s Hospital fundraiser held on weekend

Locals came out in large numbers to support the event

Vanderhoofians came out in large numbers to support the district’s fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital.

Michelle Roberge, president of Vanderhoof Community For Kids said she was excited to see the turnout. The amount raised through the fundraiser will be available in the coming week, Roberge said.

The event was held at the Nechako Seniors Friendship Centre on Oct. 19 and the tickets were sold out for the event.

Meanwhile, Tasty Tandoori, an Indian restaurant in Vanderhoof had changed their location to Burrard Avenue and held their opening night last month, during which they raised over $2500 for BC Children’s Hospital.

Below are some photos from the event.
