Chantelle Lamoureux from, Lamoureux Events designed, executed and planned "Day of Play" Fundraiser for Drayton Valley Canadian Tire. Day of Play was an event for both kids & adults aimed to raise funds for the Jumpstart Foundation in the Drayton Valley Chapter. The event is going to be held at Omniplex, the largest conference center in town. The guest expectancy is around 400 and the raised funds amount is $10,000.
Drayton Valley, Alberta has gone through many tough times throughout the past couple of years. Drayton Valley Canadian Tire wants to plan a "feel-good" event for the community while helping kids in the local community be able to play the sport of their dreams.
With the unfortunate events of the Fort McMurray disaster, Day of Play quickly switched gears and decided to donate 50% of the funds to Red Cross and 50% of the funds to Jumpstart Foundation. In saying that, Canadian Tire Corporation will double match a donation for Jumpstart. Canadian Tire Drayton Valley's Day of Play managed to raise $10,000 for Jumpstart & Red Cross. We surpassed our goal for funds and attendees, we are so proud of that. We are extremely happy that we were able to help both causes with this amazing free event. It was such a huge success!
