Fundraising Fraser Flowers – a Perfect Gift & Helps Light a Star

Submitted by EKFH on 17-12-2010

Cranbrook, BC … The bouquets are being offered at a cost of $25 (taxes & delivery charges not included) with $5 from the sale of each bouquet being donated back to support Matt’s Shoot for the Star fundraiser. 

The Starlite Bouquet is a special initiative for the Cranbrook/Kimberley only and does not pertain to orders outside of the area.

Details:   Kootenay ICE’s Matt Fraser delivers a surprise Starlite bouquet to his billet mom, Mel Graham (left) with ICE Education Coordinator Nella Rounsville sharing in on the fun.

For hockey fans wishing to order bouquets in January there is an option of having a special delivery by Matt and some ICE helpers on Thursday, January 27, 2011.
To place an order, simply contact Grower Direct at 250 426.6006 or toll-free 1-800-892-3493 and ask for the Starlite Bouquet. 
Last year Matt’s efforts focused on raising $5,000 to light one star; however in the end the generosity of hockey fans, some fundraising initiatives by Matt with his teammates and various community groups, the Shoot for the Star fundraiser realized over $14,900 which lit the sky with two stars and almost three.  The money raised by the likeable left-winger was dedicated to purchasing a node biopsy probe to assist breast cancer patient surgery here at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.    
As Matt approaches his last year with the Kootenay ICE, he wants to say thanks to all those who helped him reach last year’s goal by asking for your support once again to support the EKFH Starlite Campaign in  support of seniors programs in the region.
