Well another Poker Run is in the books. This years event was a great success. I think everyone had a good time as I know I did. I want to thank all the Sponsors and Participants for the event as well as Mt Washington for providing an excellent venue.

My goal this year was $5,000.00 and we came in just slightly under that. I will be topping up the amount myself bringing it up to the $5,000.00. The difference is less than $100.00, so in that respect the event was indeed a success.

Below are the results from the event. I have not yet provided a cheque to the BC Lions Society for Camp Shawnigan but will within the next few weeks so I can ensure all the activity in the chequing account goes through.

Thanks again to EVERYONE that helped out and participated, without you we couldn't do this and make a difference in a child's life!

Re: 3rd Annual Japanese Imports Poker Run for Camp Shawnigan

I provided Camp Shawnigan with a cheque for $5,000.00 less the fees for next years reservations for the Poker run at Mt Washington, which come to $500.00. Up until now I have been putting this up out of pocket and paying myself back and the end of the event. This year I am holding back the $500.00 so the event is self sufficient. Mt Washington provides us with bar staff and catering staff as well as the hall rental and a downpayment for food for only $500.00. Normally the hall rental itself is over $1,000.00 so they do good by us.

At any rate find below a picture of me giving the check over to Verna Write, special events co-ordinator for Camp Shawnigan and the British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities. Verna has also provided some comment for us. Basically GOOD WORK to all of us! A big thanks from me and from the Lions Society and especially from the kids that will benefit from our work/fun. />

From Verna
Each year we at the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities hold several fundraising events to support the programs and services needed by children with disabilities on Vancouver Island. In addition to our special events, we also have several local groups of people who hold their own fundraisers and chose us as the beneficiaries of their efforts. We are so pleased and honored that Dave Donovan continues to chose us as his Charity of choice and appreciate all the hard work that goes into planning and executing his annual Vancouver Island Poker Run.

We’ve had a good look at Dave’s Vancouver Island Poker Run website and now have an idea of what a Poker Run actually is. It sounds like a lot of people come together to have some fun and to raise money to support a great cause. The cars involved look amazing and I’m sure attract a good deal of attention as they travel up the island. All the proceeds of the Poker Run will go to support Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan where kids with disabilities can spend one week during the summer just being kids. There is no cost to their families and we’ve been told numerous times that they look forward to camp more than Christmas. It is truly a magical place and through the hard work and generosity of people like you, we can keep enriching the lives of these special children.

Thank you so very much for helping us give kids abilities.



All our best,
