FUNDRAISER IN TOM’S MEMORY

Just a few minutes ago, as I was running along the dock across the street from home, watching the early morning float planes take off, viewing boats coming and going into the marina against the backdrop of the mountains, and chatting with Lighthouse Pub’s manager, Dale, an idea took hold.  We finalized plans for Tom’s memorial birthday party/ fundraiser:

TIME:  1 p.m.

LOCATION:  Lighthouse Pub (Lighthouse Marine Pub)

5764 Wharf Ave
Sechelt

PURPOSE: To celebrate memorial 28th Birthday Party for Tom; Fundraising Lunch

(You may already know that Tom would have been 28 this August 28th.)  All proceeds will go to Tom’s Scholarship Fund, being set up at UBC for a final year engineering student.

PLEASE PLAN TO JOIN US IF YOU CAN – IN TOMMY’S MEMORY.  Help us put his fund over the top.

We have passed the $8,000 mark of $30,000 required for Tommy’s scholarship to be endowed.  With your help and everybody’s help, we could be much closer after the 28th. For more Scholarship Information, click here.
