Sailors for Wishes BBQ
August 8th, 2019 to August 9th, 2019
Sobeys, 1125 St Peter Avenue
Again this year, sailors from the HMCS Fredericton ship in Halifax will be presenting their "Sailors for Wishes" campaign on behalf of The Children's Wish Foundation, New Brunswick Chapter. As such, they will be hosting fundraising events in the Bathurst area on August 8th and August 9th. Members of the community are invited to a BBQ hosted by the Sailors on August 8th at Sobeys - 1125 St Peters Avenue from 11am to 2pm.
The Children's Wish Foundation is the only all-Canadian wish granting organization in the country and have been granting heartfelt wishes to children aged 3 - 17 with life threatening illnesses and neurological disorders since 1984. These wishes have a significant impact on the child, the immediate and extended family, as well as health care providers. To date, Children's Wish has granted over 27,000 wishes across Canada, 900 of those right here in NB. The New Brunswick Chapter of Children's Wish is currently working on over 80 wishes and each wish costs approximately $10,000. The need is great and your support is greatly appreciated.
Please join these Sailors in their fundraising efforts.
