The staff at Aldergrove Financial Group has raised more than $20,000 to support BC Children’s Hospital through its annual fundraising campaign.

“We are honoured to support a charity that does so much for seriously ill children and their families. BC Children’s Hospital makes such a difference in their lives,” said Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl.

Fundraising took place through a variety of activities including:

• A raffle for a chance to win a signed Vancouver Canucks Ryan Kesler jersey and a signed BC Lions Travis Lulay jersey

• Gift basket raffles, book sales and hot dog BBQs

• 50/50 draws

• Penny drive

• Staff jeans days

• A staff team in the BC Children’s Hospital slo-pitch tournament. The Aldergrove Financial Group A-Team was recognized as the largest team fundraising in their division.

BC Children’s Hospital uses donations to purchase life-saving equipment; research the treatment, prevention and cure of childhood diseases; recruit and provide educational programs for caregivers; and provide programs in communities throughout the province.
