Thanks for supporting the Homework Club again this year!
We always have a great time when we visit the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa and on Tuesday we got to hang out with the Homework Club again! It marked the end of our three-month long fundraiser with the sale of EK #65 Blend, a great coffee that Ottawa Senator Erik Karlsson helped to us develop for BGCO.
Ian Clark, Colleen Mooney, Gina Becker, and enthusiastic Homework Club kids at the event!
$2 from every pound of EK #65 Blend sold went to the Homework Club. Thanks to you, we were able to donate over $11,000 to a community program that provides a safe and supportive environment for children and youth to get after-school help with their homework, to form solid friendships, and to be active.
Our sincere and special thanks to Erik Karlsson for working with us again this year. We cannot thank him enough for his support. Without him, we would not have been able to raise the $22,000 between this year and last.This year’s Most Valuable Supporter award? Hats off (again!) to our Bank and Second Avenue coffeehouse team who defended the blue line in true Karlsson style to retain their title! From November through February almost one out of every five bags of coffee bought at Second was a bag of EK #65 Blend to support the Homework Club. Our thanks to them for driving this fundraiser so much - they really hit the ball out of the park (puck out of the rink?)!
