Aldergrove Financial Group staff helps raise $18,000

Staff at the Aldergrove Financial Group has raised more than $18,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital.

“Our staff truly put their hearts into this fundraising initiative to provide funds for the children and the families that are in need of care and support through the B.C. Children’s Hospital,” said Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl.

The money was raised through a variety of ways, including a raffle for a signed Kevin Bieksa jersey, bake sales, book sales and gift basket raffles, 50/50 draws, a penny drive where Aldergrove Credit Union matched every donated penny, staff jean days, and a staff team in the B.C. Children’s Hospital slo-pitch tournament.

“True to our co-operative spirit ... our staff members and clients have come together for this very worthwhile cause,” Hartl said.
