Funds from an Angel

Alberni's Angel Magnussen is raising funds for Variety Kids.

To the editor,

Angel’s Variety Fundraising Blitz Day raised $750 for Variety’s Kids.

Angel also sold many Love Hats and took at least 15 orders for more of them, which she’s already knitting.

The kids at B.C. Childrens Hospital Oncology Unit will be very pleased to receive their hats by Angel.

Thank you to everyone that helped to support this event, by making a donation or by baking for the bake sale.

Big thanks go out to Quality Foods, Taylor’s Flowers, The Bank of Montreal and The Alberni Valley Bulldogs for their generosity.

We thank each of you for your help in pulling this successful event together.

Angel will continue her fundraising efforts during the month of October as she strives to reach her goal of raising $100,000 for Variety The Chíldren’s Charity.

Angel will be collecting coin donations, selling Angel’s Celebrity Charity Cookbooks and Love Hats at Wal Mart every Saturday afternoon this month, from 12-4 p.m.

She can also be found bagging groceries at Quality Foods for donations several afternoons per week.

In addition, the Heroes With Hearts Campaign is set to run from Monday Oct. 17 until Friday Oct. 21.  Local heroes and celebrities will be helping Angel to bag groceries for donations at Quality Foods from 4-6 p.m. daily.

Please let us know if you are able to come out to help Angel bag groceries for donations.

Angel and Cheryl Magnussen,

Port Alberni
