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.

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