Fundraiser for the Tillicum Centre

Hot dog barbecue at Rona from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 11

Sherry Cross is one of five clients from Tillicum Centre that is employed by Ebi Fazzari at Hope Rona. There will be a fundraiser at the store on May 11.

Tillicum Centre will be hosting its annual hot dog fundraiser at Rona this Saturday.

Cooper’s Foods is supplying the hot dogs and Rona is providing the beverages, buns and barbecue. All food and drinks can be purchased by donation.

“It’s our biggest one-day sale of the year and to have them do their hot dog fundraiser that day, they’ll get the most traffic,” said store manager Ebi Fazzari, pointing out that May 11 is Rona’s scratch and save sale. “The more money they have to work with, the more programs they can run.”

Rona has been a big supporter of Tillicum Centre over the years. Five clients are currently employed by the home improvement store. Each person works a two-hour shift every week.

“We try and include them in everything,” said Fazzari. “It’s a big benefit for us because they get to things that we don’t have time to do and it’s good for them socially. We try and be as involved in the community as we can. We’d like to do more, but unfortunately like everybody else there’s been budget cutbacks.”

The hot dog fundraiser takes place on May 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Rona’s  front parking lot.
