The Qualicum Bay Lions Club is selling 50/50 online raffle tickets to send children and adults with disabilities to Easter Seals Camps both in person and online this summer.
“We’re very excited to join this virtual fundraiser and help raise funds for one of our club projects – the kids of Camp Shawnigan,” said Shirley Phillips, Qualicum Bay Lions Club president. “And who wouldn’t want to win half the jackpot?”
The Qualicum Bay Lions Club has been actively involved in Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan for a number of years.
“Camp Shawnigan provides a lot of fun and skills to campers with disabilities in our community,” said Phillips. “And they also provide a critical opportunity to address isolation and socialization, especially following this year’s pandemic when so many programs and supportive services shut down.”
With every ticket purchased, funding will ensure campers receive the onsite support they need, receive healthy meals and snacks and have access, equipment and supplies for a full camp program whether it’s in person or virtually at home.
Raffle tickets are on sale for 3 for $10, 15 for $20, 35 for $40 and 100 for $100, and will be available for purchase until midnight May 31, 2021 at www.eastersealsbcy.rafflenexus.com/qualicumbaylions
To purchase a ticket, you must be 19 years of age or older and a resident of British Columbia. The winning ticket will be drawn at noon June 1 live on the Easter Seals Facebook page.
This year Easter Seals is offering a number of different camp options for persons with disabilities from ages 6 to 49 years: a weekend Family Camp at Camp Shawnigan, City Adventure Day Camps in Victoria, Vancouver and Kelowna, an Outdoor Adventure Day Camp at Camp Winfield, and seven weeks of online virtual camps.
