On October 24, Triple O's will donate a Loonie for every combo sold 'So All Kids Can Play'
VANCOUVER, Oct. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Let's do it for the kids! For the fifth consecutive year, Triple O's and its caring guests are teaming up to put British Columbia's financially underprivileged children into organized sports this season. Since the fundraiser kicked off four years ago, Triple O's has already raised $93,000. This year's goal is an ambitious $30,000.
From October 6 to 24, guests are encouraged to donate to KidSport BC at any of the 32 participating Triple O's locations across the province. The fundraiser's big day is October 24, when the roster of Triple O's will donate $1 to KidSport BC with the sale of every combo.
"Triple O's is passionate about supporting the communities where we live, work and play," said White Spot and Triple O's President Warren Erhart. "Helping kids in need is a team effort. That's why we're deepening our commitment to KidSport for this win-win campaign. This year's ambitious fundraising goal shows that Triple O's restaurants are really gearing up for the game, and we look forward to building on this tradition for years to come. "
Funds raised go to the nearest KidSport community chapter, allowing kids to participate in local, organized sports ranging from hockey and baseball to gymnastics and lacrosse. KidSport has provided financial assistance to half a million kids since its inception in 1993.
"Our partnership with Triple O's reflects the value that both our organizations place on the importance of family and community," says Pete Quevillon, Director of KidSport BC. "Triple O's is a great place for a post-game meal, and with locations around the province this campaign allows many of our community-based chapters to generate awareness and keep the funds raised in the community. We are truly fortunate to have such a great provincial partner and are happy to have Triple O's as part of the KidSport family."
Team KidSport ambassador Mike Janyk, who has enjoyed a successful career on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, reaffirms the importance of community-level, grassroots support for young athletes. "The heart of sport lies in its communities," he says. "Triple O's is actively involved with theirs in such a cool way by supporting Kidsport."
