An Okanagan-based business has once again held a successful fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.
T-Bone’s Fresh Meal Market held a friendly fundraising competition between its five stores, located in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Mission, Vernon and Penticton.
In just a few short days in December 2019, the stores managed to raise $11,000.
“Alzheimer’s is a cause that is near and dear to the owners,” said Patti Ulveland of T-Bone’s. “After the diagnosis of one of their parents they quickly realized how great the need is to support the caregivers as well as the patients.”
T-Bone’s also kicks off every summer with a prawn skewer blitz sale, which has run since 2015 and raised more than $57,000.
The funds have helped the Alzheimer Society offer programs such as educational workshops, and also provide critical support for caregivers.
Both the T-Bone’s ownership group and the stores’ customers contributed to the December fundraising total.
“T-Bone’s would like to thank their loyal customers who have embraced this fundraising and their staff who go the extra mile to ensure its success.”
