HHBF Tag day a HUGE success!

On the Victoria Day Long Weekend, 29 athletes from HHBF volunteered their time to collect funds for the first ever HHBF tag day. It was a roaring success, collecting more than $3000.00 from helpful people in our community. This was a little bit of a rushed effort, but a great one at that, and could not have happened without the help of Laurie Fox, who spearheaded the operation. Special thanks to Shannon Griffiths who helped with the fundraising and all other executive members who supervised, counted, rolled change and helped with this project.

Great big thanks to the parent volunteers that were on duty for each 2 hour shift.
We made sure that the kids were always supervised. We were also complimented at how kind and professional our athletes were during the shifts.

Georgetown was amazing and we had more locations than kids this year. So many store owners volunteered to allow us to tag at their locations, we simply could not do them all. It is very exciting to know that we have so much support in the community.

Stores to thank: Beer Store, 2 Metros, Dollaramma, Pita Pit, Superstore, Home Hardware.

Number of Kids who participated = 29
Average Box / 2 hour shift brought in ~ $97.77
Best Box $232 (Michael Jans)
Best 4 hour shift $337.14 (Chris Fox)

Great work and a great big THANK YOU to everyone that helped.
