In memory of my husband, Dave Giesbrecht, my oldest daughter Kaitlyn decided to hold a bake sale/hot dog sale on May 12 to help raise money for Relay for Life — Team Dave Giesbrecht.
We wish to express a very large thank you to Coopers in Westsyde (especially manager Bill Campbell and his staff).
Bill kindly offered us a spot outside of Coopers and donated all the hot dogs, buns, pop and fixings.
Thank you also to our many family members, wonderful friends and co-workers for donating their time and baking, and for the outpouring of financial support from Coopers customers. The weather co-operated and we raised a great deal of money for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Generosity was exemplified by the very special construction workers at Coopers. One worker handed over a $100 bill and all he wanted was 10 hot dogs and would not take any change back.
The sense of community in Westsyde was truly present and the generosity of so many was kindly appreciated. We are well on the way to our goal of $5,000.
On behalf of my daughters (Shannon, Alana, Kaitlyn) and myself, we wish to say, “Thank You” to all who participated or donated. It has been a rough few years, but to know that so many people care, helps us get through each day. If you would still like to donate, go to relaybc.ca and look for Team Dave Giesbrecht.
