Local contractor fundraising for Haiti trip

Beer and burger fundraising event scheduled for Eaglecrest golf course Oct. 18

A local contractor is on his way back to help rebuild Haiti and selling tickets for a fundraiser.

Craig Gooding is organizing a beer and burger fundraiser at Eagle Crest Golf Course Oct. 18 to help fund his third trip to Haiti since the 2010 earthquake that killed as many as 160,000 people and destroyed over 250,000 homes.

Gooding is paying all his own expenses to travel to the country with the charitable Faith and Love In Action

(www.faithandloveinaction.org) to continue work on several projects they did on previous trips, so all funds raised go directly to the project.

The only person on this trip from Vancouver Island, Gooding will be joining 11 other contractors, leaving Canada Oct. 31.

Craig’s mother Tina who’s helping organize the Oct. 18 beer and burger night said tickets are available at Cranky Dog Music in Parksville or through her at 250-248-3665.
