As a way of giving back to those who helped her family, Shannon White of Princeton initiated a fundraiser to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital.
Due to the generosity of local individuals and businesses the fundraiser included the chance for those who donated to win prizes. On Saturday, May 31 just before she was to leave for the Miracle Weekend on Global television, Shannon stopped in at Valley First Credit Union to choose the winners. As of Saturday, funds raised for B.C. Children’s Hospital amounted to $5076.89. The online donations and donations made during Shannon’s participation during Miracle Weekend have yet to be totalled.
A very excited Cayden, (Shannon’s five year old grandson) said, “we’re giving prizes to help the kids to feel better!” With that statement, Shannon, assisted by Leslie Edwards and Cayden, went on to draw the prize winners.
