Invermere, BC. (October, 2011) – Community support never tasted so good! New residents to the Columbia Valley, Kurt & Bethany Taylor are also the new owners of the Tim Hortons Invermere franchise. The two entrepreneurs aren’t taking any time showing their commitment behind charitable causes with a recent donation of $562 from the Tim Hortons Annual Smile Cookie fundraiser being sent to East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign.

“We are thrilled to be associated with Tim Hortons and the Smile Cookie Campaign and were pleased to have the opportunity to support the fundraising for the A Clear View Campaign. We are really looking forward to growing our business and learning more about our community I think that’s something we can all smile about,” explains Kurt Taylor.

The proceeds from the Invermere campaign will benefit the A Clear View – digital mammography campaign to bring a digital stereotactic mammography unit to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
