Last month we held the ‘Give it Up Team Challenge’ as a component of our ‘Give it Up for Hunger Event’. We challenged local businesses to compete to see who could raise the most money for us here at the Food Bank. Yet again we were so impressed with our incredible supporters! This year we had 10 teams participating with a huge variety of efforts to raise money – including silent auctions, luncheons, BBQs, potlucks and % of sales promotions!
The totals are in, and our winning team – for the 2nd year in a row – is Remax Little Oak Realty! Their awesome group rallied together with multiple different fundraising efforts to raise $3000!! As the winning team, they won the coveted Team Challenge Trophy, and amazing gift baskets donated by our friends at the Bay, and Winks.
The runner-up was the ServiceMaster Clean team. Their first year participating, we were blown away by their efforts – raising over $600 for the Team Challenge and donating a service package for our online auction.
Thank you again to all who participated – together you raised over $5200 to help us continue to serve those less fortunate in Abbotsford!
