Dixon’s Service Center & NAPA Autopro $5,000 Lights a Star
Cranbrook, BC… EKFH is proud to announce the lighting of its 8th large star atop the East Kootenay Regional Hospital as part of the 2015 Starlite Campaign.
NAPA Autopro dealers from Southern BC and Alberta gathered this past fall to play golf in the 2nd annual John Dixon Memorial Golf Tournament. “Our corporate office and our dealers have great respect for John and the Dixon family and it’s been our pleasure to come together to raise funds for EKFH a charity that the family has a passion for,” reports event organizer Josh Braithwaite, Banners & Major Account Coordinator of the NAPA Autopro Group in Calgary.
The fun-filled event featured a team scramble, mulligans and an auction resulting in generous support of $2,605 for the foundation’s annual holiday giving campaign.
Even more remarkable was the generosity from the Dixon family who have donated their own $2,500 for an accumulated give of $5,105 that is being dedicated to EKFH’s mission to provide funding to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and other community facilities in complementing the health care needs of the region.
Marian Dixon shares, “We are still very connected to and involved with NAPA Autopro. Helping to light this star for our hospital is not just for John but for every NAPA Autopro dealer, staff and customers that supports our businesses.”
The Starlite Campaign officially kicked off on November 27 and will continue through to January 31, 2016. Every donation EKFH’s receives no matter how big or small can truly light a path for others.
