Vernon Lions Support NONA Clubhouse in 2017 Bay Giving Day
You were so supportive of our efforts in the 2016 Hudson's Bay Giving Day in which we donated $2,787.50 to the North Okanagan Neurological Association (NONA), that we decided to ask for your support again this year.
We'll be around town promoting the purchase of a $5 Hudson's Bay Giving Day ticket. Proceeds from tickets purchased from a Vernon Lion will be donated to NONA's Clubhouse Building Fund, plus you'll be able to save on purchases throughout the Bay store on March 24th: 10% savings on cosmetics, fragrances, furniture, appliances and more; 15% savings on purchases without a Hudson's Bay MasterCard of Hudson's Bay Credit Card; and 20% savings on just about anything if purchased with a Bay MasterCard or Credit Card. (Please see details on an actual ticket.)
But that's not all! Each ticket entitles you to an entry into a draw to win a $5,000 Hudson's Bay Shopping Spree! Additional draws will take place throughout the store that day, and there will be special sales as well. Thank you for your support of NONA in their good work helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Good Luck in the draw!
LEOs Freeze for Fundraiser...
The Vernon LEOs recently participated in the Vernon Winter Carnival Polar Bear Swim. The Leos raised over $1,000 through pledges and donations. The annual Polar Bear Swim, in its fourth year, raises funds for sustainable projects in Zimbabwe. Nine LEOs and two Lion Advisors took part in the event.
It was cold that day and the beach front was frozen solid! So, someone thought up the idea of fetching lake water in 20 liter buckets and dumping them over the heads of the participants... brrr!
