Thanks to the generosity of the Greater Vernon Community Allan Brooks Nature Centre had a record breaking year with the Spring Mega Plant and Garage Sale! Over $18,000 was raised over 3 days (May 27, 28 and June 3). “We’re thrilled with the support from the community and hope to see the same excitement for our upcoming Raptor weeks returning to Allan Brooks in July and August” says Executive Director Aaron Deans.
Thank you to all those people that donated, delivered, stored and purchased items. The staff and Board members would especially like to extend our gratitude to all our outstanding volunteers without which this fundraiser would not happen. A very special thank you as well to our amazing sponsors, Kal Tire, Nixon Wenger, Elephant Storage Trunks, Sun Country Cycle, Vantage One Credit Union, Royal LePage, Silver Star Mountain Resort, Fix Auto, Wayside, and Century 21 Executives.
The money raised from the Spring Garage Sale will go towards nature education programs and learning materials at Allan Brooks Nature Centre.
