On Thursday, March 3rd the Amherst team held their first fundraising event for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The event was held at the Yaletown Brew pub and it was a great success to say the least, raising over $2400!
Our three bartenders, Jaime, Jess and Natalie set up stations around the pub and were hard at work mixing delicious martinis for everyone to enjoy. We sold 50/50 tickets, martini drink tickets and bike raffle tickets on the night, all proceeds of course going to the teams fundraising goal of $22,500.
The climax of the event was the big draw to see who won the Brodie road bike. The winner was a lovely client of ours.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our friends, family, and clients who came out to make the night as fun and successful as it was, your support is much appreciated!
We would also like to thank everyone who has donated this far to our wonderful cause. Thank you to Yaletown Brew pub for allowing us to host our event there.
If you would like to donate please visit www.conquercancer.ca and look for the Amherst Veterinary Hospital Team. Stay tuned for more fundraisers throughout the year. Our team of 9 members rides August 27-28th!
