A Big Thank You to Everyone!
On behalf of everyone involved with the Saanich Express; we would like to say “THANK YOU!” to all whom attended our Beer & Burger Fundraiser.
A number of fabulous donations were received from businesses here in our community, from our wonderful sponsors who keep on supporting our young men, and of course the items received from our parents and players. All of these items totaled a whopping 36 different gift baskets that were generously donated to our fundraising event.
The evening began as a social gathering where many players and parents were able to introduce themselves to the team sponsors and other family members of their teammates. As more supporters arrived, everyone sat down to enjoy their burgers and beverages as well as a few more! Music Bingo was a huge success (Thank you Steve Cleugh!) being kicked off by our traditional theme song “Crazy Train”.
Basket items were wonderfully organized and assembled by Toni Dosouto, Andrea Churchill and Christy Tytgat. A huge thank you to Heather Clarke and Brigitte Ackinclose for spending their evening selling 50/50 and the Boondocks Pub and Restaurant (@BoondocksSidney) waitresses, bartender, cooks, prep staff and to owners Jennifer and Sean O’Neill for hosting our event.
Simply put, if it wasn’t for faithful supporters like you, we wouldn’t exist. So thank you for contributing to the Saanich Express Jr. Lacrosse team, so that we can make a difference in the lives of our teenagers who are like family to our organization.
