Kootenay Import Auto Group Kids Carnival – $1812 for A Clear View

Submitted by EKFH on 05-09-2012   Cranbrook, BC…   Thanks to the Kootenay Import Auto Group and its desire to give back to community, East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s digital stereotactic mammography campaign moved another $1812 towards its one million dollar fundraising goal.   On August 23, 24 and 25 managers and sales teams from the Kootenay Import Auto Group (Arrow Motors Volkswagen, Hillcrest Hyundai, Sun Valley Nissan and Subaru of Cranbrook) held a kids’ carnival and auto sales event in support of A Clear View.   The group, all decked out in pink, offered games of chance for both adults and kids, a delicious bbq of hot dogs and burgers (all by donation) and for the individual purchasing or driving away in their beautiful car or truck, a chance to dunk their sales person. And yes, there were many wet footprints all over the lot.   An added surprise on Saturday was a women’s roller derby match between Cranbrook’s Mountain Town Maulers and Kimberley’s Bavarian the Barbarians who also encouraged donations for the campaign and added their totals with the automakers.   Giving back to community and to health care… Kootenay Import Auto Group, a part of the picture and a solution to bring the best in breast cancer imaging to the East Kootenay.       L-R: Shannon Thomas, Cory Fedorwich (Kootenay Import Auto Group), Donna Grainger (EKFH), Stephanie Phillips, Heidi Potter, Andrea Hamilton (Cranbrook Mountain town Maulers); missing from photo: Kimberley’s Bavarian the Barbarians
