Herv Bezjak (kneeling, left) and Trevor Kavanagh (far right), of the Langley Boys and Girls Club, were on hand at Coast Wholesale Appliances to accept a washer and dryer from the Langley Good Times Cruise-In directors, and Mike (far left) of Coast Wholesale Appliances. The local business provided Cruise-In with wholesale pricing for the washer and dryer, which was badly needed by the Langley Boys and Girls Program. The donation was part of $54,000 that the Cruise-In raised in 2013 and distributed among 15 groups and organizations.
