Shoreline Orthodontics sends YANA Ride over the top

Cheque for $1,000 presented, allowing fundraiser to meet financial goal

Shoreline Orthodontics was just the friend YANA was looking for when this years Simons  Cycle YANA ride come up a little short on their fundraising target. After reading the CV Records report of the event and discovering that the group was $1,000 off their target the Shoreline team called up Marcie Dumais, YANA executive director and arranged to provide the much needed funds.

You Are Not Alone is a community organization offering help to Comox Valley families who need to travel to access medical treatment for their children.

The Shoreline Orthodontics team participates weekly in a Jeans Day where each member contributes to a fund. The group then determines which local community programs they are going to sponsor. Over the years they have contributed to programs in the valley as well as Campbell River and Powell River. Local beneficiaries have been the  CV Child Development Society, Therapeutic Riding, and Cumberland Community Forest.
