Comox fundraiser Friday will help children's charity

Pharmasave in Comox is donating $500 to the fundraising efforts of Grace Howard, a finalist for the Miss World Canada pageant, which raises money for the Children's Charity.

In turn, Grace, a 20-year-old Comox resident, will sell $3 gold hearts Friday at the store. Proceeds benefit NGO Variety — the Children's Charity.

Grace has so far raised $845. Her goal is to reach $7,000 by her birthday on April 7.

To help her fundraising efforts, visit www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFundraisingPage?ID=1277&AID=2251&PID=404586.

Those interested in sponsoring can contact her at grace.howard@missworldcanada.com.

Pharmasave sells hearts between Jan. 1 and Feb. 14. Since 1998, Pharmasave has contributed more than $1.9 million to Variety.

The store is located at Aspen Grove Centre at Guthrie Road in Comox. Grace will be onsite Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
