Lions walk and roll

The Baynes Sound Lions raise funds for the 37th annual Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon.

BAYNES SOUND LIONS and Lioness members will wheel up Highway 19A this sunday to contribute to the total raised at the annual Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon.

The Baynes Sound Lions and Lioness are geared up and ready to roll.

This Sunday, they will walk and roll to raise funds for the 37th annual Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon.

Come rain or shine, this dedicated and hard-working group of men and women will look for your support as they wheel up the Island from Fanny Bay to the Old Church Theatre on Harmston Avenue in Courtenay.

it is all for a great cause — the telethon will air live on Shaw TV Channel 4 from noon to 8 p.m. on Nov. 4. All money raised stays right here in the Comox Valley and supports children with special needs and their families.

The Child Development Association is located at the corner of Third Street and Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay and last year served 798 children with special needs.

Call 250-334-9200 on Sunday to donate, and visit www.cvcda.ca to learn about the CVCDA’s services.
