The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club is selling 50/50 online raffle tickets to send kids and adults with disabilities to Easter Seals Camps both in-person and online this summer.
“We’re very excited to join this virtual fundraiser and help raise funds for one of our club projects – the kids of Camp Shawnigan,” says Ken Hand, Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club president. “Camp Shawnigan provides a lot of fun and skills to campers with disabilities in our community, and they provide a critical opportunity to address isolation and socialization, especially following this year’s pandemic when so many programs and supportive services shut down.”
The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club has been actively involved in Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan for a number of years.
“Raising funds for our community has been hard this past year due to the pandemic,” adds Hand. “This fundraiser is easy for anyone to get involved and they even get a chance to win half the jackpot.”
With every ticket purchased, funding will ensure campers receive the onsite support they need, receive healthy meals and snacks, and have access, equipment and supplies for a full camp program whether it’s in person or virtually at home.
Raffle tickets are on sale for three for $10, 15 for $20, 35 for $40 and 100 for $100, and will be available for purchase until midnight May 31, at bit.ly/3tAGlsb
To purchase a ticket, you must be 19 years of age or older and a resident of British Columbia. The winning ticket will be drawn at noon on June 1st, live on the Easter Seals Facebook page.
This year Easter Seals is offering a number of different camp options for persons with disabilities from ages 6 to 49 years: a weekend Family Camp at Camp Shawnigan, City Adventure Day Camps in Victoria, Vancouver & Kelowna, an Outdoor Adventure Day Camp at Camp Winfield, and seven weeks of online Virtual Camps.
