A youth organization has received $10,000 in funding as a result of a nomination from Nesters Market in Summerland.
Leanne Sieben, manager of Nesters, made the nomination.
The funding came from the charitable organization of Paul Newman.
Newman’s Own Foundation provided the funding at their annual luncheon on May 13.
Sieben said she was proud because the winning entry went to the community.
“I’m really happy that Nesters Market has been able to be part of the community,” Sieben said.
“We are a big part of this community, we support whatever we can.”
Alyson Lindsay, program manager at Said, was pleased that Nesters Market had nominated the youth organization.
