24-Hour Charity Hockey Game
Working with the Sarnia Sting, #charitable is hosting a 24-Hour Charity Hockey Game! Starting on Friday, September 8 at 8 a.m., local teams will play for 24 consecutive hours at Progressive Auto Sales Arena. To participate, teams are asked to raise $1,000 for a local charity and perform one good deed in the community. Over the course of the 24 hours, 48 teams will play in one-hour time slots, with pairings based on skill and age level. On Friday night, the Sarnia Sting will take to the ice for an intrasquad game to show off the 2023/2024 team.
Partnership with Noelle’s Gift for Children’s Book
Noelle’s Gift and #charitable are working together to create a Sarnia-Lambton children’s book that will follows a local child as they explore different jobs in the community. Encountering real Sarnia-Lambton residents, the child will learn about a variety of different jobs and roles within the community, discovering all the ways they can grow up to be a smash hit!
Race To Erase
Teams of four compete in fun-filled challenges, all in support of local charities. The challenges, or stops, are located throughout the community and seek to highlight different local businesses and organizations. They are a combination of savvy and smarts – no goofy shorts required. Each team is asked to raise $500 for the charity of their choosing - with all the proceeds from the event going directly to the charities. Since the first event was held in 2006, Race to Erase has raised over $750,000 in Sarnia, London, and Cambridge.
Are you ready to get involved in the latest win-win-win initiative? Support local businesses, support a local organization, then give and receive a local present! Secret Santa see’s citizens find that perfect gift….for a stranger. Participants donate to Pathways Health Centre for Children and complete their letter to Santa. They then get matched and can start shopping. We love working with local organizations to make amazing things happen, and we are grateful for the support offered by Vision Nursing & Rest Home for this year’s Secret Santa event.
