BPNS Tourney Recognizes YKRS with $500 Gift

Submitted by EKFH on 28-10-2014

Yahk, BC… Earlier this summer members from the Yahk Kingsgate Recreation Society (YKRS) lent a hand and watched for hole-in-one possibilities at the BPNS Golf Tournament in support of EKFH (East Kootenay Foundation for Health).

Signature sponsors Boston Pizza (Trevor & Angela Gordon) and Northstar (Derek & Pat Spring) wanted to thank the volunteer’s for their spirit and support and made a $500 donation to YKRS which was delivered this week by EKFH’s Executive Director Donna Grainger.

The Society is a very active group and continually organizes socials and activities for the community, welcomes others to its annual Fall Fair and encourages visits and a stop at the Yahk Community Hall, most recently by the Cops for Kids.

YKRS President Judy Dickson was excited and surprised by the BPNS donation. Judy reports it will be put to use immediately by providing supporting funds for the YKRS to host its annual Volunteer Dinner on November 8.

The BPNS Golf Tournament and its amazing generosity provided funding to EKFH (7 vital signs monitors for the regional hospital), the BCSPCA Cranbrook Branch and the YKRS.

Philanthropy and sharing… a true partnership in giving. Hats off to Boston Pizza and Northstar for your extreme generosity see you at the tournament next year.
