Tamarack Centre flipped for funds

Tamarack Centre’s Sam Steele Days Kick Off Pancake Breakfast raised $1575.98 for the Kootenay Child Development Centre.

The Sam Steele Days Kick-Off Pancake Breakfast was held at Tamarack Centre on June 19 and 488 Cranbrook citizens and visitors in the area came out to enjoy a breakfast feast of pancakes with fruit sauces and whipped cream, sausages, juice, hot chocolate, coffee and tea.

The breakfast was by donation, and a grand total of $1575.98 was raised and donated to the Kootenay Child Development Centre.

The Kootenay Child Development Centre (KCDC) is a multi-service centre that provides a full continuum of child health and development services in one accessible central location. KCDC was a vision of community service providers and the Community Connections Society of Southeast BC (CCS).

A big thank you to all of the local businesses for their very generous support, donations and sponsorship; Bridge Interiors donated their large tents, Save On Foods for the very generous donation of food, Culligan Water for help with ice and water, Tim Horton’s for keeping the coffee on, Sandor Rentals for the grill and chairs, Scotia Bank for the use of their grill, and Green Door catering for cooking up such a wonderful breakfast.

Of course this breakfast could not have been as successful without all of the help from the many volunteers that gave their time. A big thank you to the staff at KCDC and from Winners who kept the food line moving so swiftly. Thank you to the ladies from Save On Foods who helped mix batter and run food from the cook table to the food table, Jaime and Ty from Green Door Catering for such an excellent job on cooking the breakfast, Derek Kortschaga from the Drive and B104 for providing the music, and the Tamarack Centre admin staff for organizing and keeping the event running so smoothly.
