Brain injury fundraiser set

OctoberQuest is coming to Parksville with a host of fun events at the school fair like garage sale marking the first fundraiser of the Oceanside Brain Injury Society and Resource Network (OBISNet) Oct. 22 and 23.

They are still looking for donations which can be dropped off at their headquarters at 7 Constantine Place, off Wembley Road, in Parksville.  Volunteers would also be very welcomed, said group founder Scarlette Lexington.

OctoberQuest, as in the quest for brain injury awareness and prevention, will include the garage sale, silent auction, 50/50 draws, a cake walk, kids fishing pond, live music and more, all as part of a fun weekend for a good cause.

The recently registered not-for-profit hosts a regular breakfast meet’ n greet 10 a.m. Fridays at the Wembley Mall White Spot.

The organization’s  mission is to assist survivors of acquired and traumatic brain injury and their families with informational support, guidance and help.

For more information, to help or join, contact OBISNet at 250-586-OBIS (6247) or e-mail obisnetwork@live.ca.
