13 - 15
This event is a non-profit, fund raiser, with all proceeds going to the Barriere Food Bank, also known as “Nicky’s Little Red Wagon”, with a portion going to the Nicky Grummet Scholarship fund.
Nicky Grummet was a very special boy, who at the age of five, began collecting bottles & cans so he could give the money to families less privileged. Sadly, Nicky passed away at the age of 15, only months after his father Colin passed from Cancer. This event is held in honour of Colin & Nicky. We hope that everyone will come out to help continue Nicky’s legacy in helping those less fortunate.
Come on out and have a day of riding, driving, friends and fun! The day starts out with the Toy Run, leaving from the AG Foods parking lot at noon, this ends at the Food Bank, where all the donations are dropped off. From here, everyone in the community is invited to join us for the Bike Games. This is open to the public, no entrance fee, adults and kids all welcome! Come out – have some laughs, great fun for everyone. Later we have our dinner and dance at the Barriere Legion. This is an excellent dinner starting at 6 pm – followed by the dance around 9 pm. Tickets are pre-sold and are required for the dinner and dance. Dance tickets not needed, pay at door $10 each. There will be free shuttle bus rides available to and from in the Barriere area.
Also this year, we have members of the Skateboard Park hosting the bike games concession as a fund raiser for them.
We are still in need of donations for our Silent Auction, this is really important to the event, as it brings in a substantible amount for the Food Bank.
If you would like to make a donation to the silent auction or a cash donation to the Food Bank or Scholarship, it would be greatly appreciated and your support will be acknowledged on our website with your logo and a link to your website if available. You can contact Marie at 250-819-2075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have something to donate, and she would be more than happy to pick it up.
