Fundraiser to help wildlife centre

North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre to benefit from artistic fundraiser

The new office of Edward Jones in Qualicum Beach will be the place to be next month as the staff at the financial company raise holiday spirits and money for the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre in Errington.

Company spokesperson Lenore Leitch said the company is already gearing up for the big event, which will kick off at a special open house on Dec. 14.

“It’s a Christmas thing we’re doing,” Leitch said. “Our tree is going to be decorated with five-by-seven-inch paintings by Joe Rosenblatt and we are going to be selling them, with all proceeds going to North Island Wildlife.”

Rosenblatt, she noted, normally paints very large canvasses, which sell for thousands of dollars, but the much smaller works will have an asking price of only $50 each.

The event will double as an official office opening for the recently-relocated business, with doors opening from 5 to 7 p.m.
