The Child Development Centre in Fort St. John is gearing up to raise some serious cash.
Penny Gagnon discussed several upcoming fundraisers on last week’s Issues and Answers.
On March 4th, Archtech Welding and Machining, along with Moose FM, will be broadcasting live from Pricesmart, in hopes of raising $30,000 for the CDC’s “Project Build a Fort”.
Gagnon says the 10,000 square-foot expansion project was dubbed “Build a Fort” to embrace education and play, and also honour Fort St. John.
The expansion will create additional therapy space, and an interactive play centre. It will also enable the CDC to construct a small gym, a life-skills centre and two new pre-school classrooms.
The CDC accommodates children with a variety of special needs, so Gagnon says this expansion is crucial in enhancing the organization’s services.
On March 5th, the CDC will hold its 36th Annual Talent Show at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
And, on March 19th, Moose FM and Singer Sean Hogan will hold a benefit concert. Tickets are $40 each, and available at the Moose FM studios on 101 Avenue.
For more information, you can contact Moose FM at 250-787-7100 or call the CDC at 250-785-3200.
