Annual Boyd Autobody & Glass Father’s Day Charity Car Show nets $25,000 for the Child Advocacy Centre of Kelowna.
Boyd Autobody & Glass is thrilled to announce they were able to raised over $25,000 this past June to support the development of the Child Advocacy Centre (CAC) of Kelowna. The “CAC” will be a child friendly Centre of Excellence that will provide a collaborative response to child abuse in our community. The Centre will improve access, efficiency and effectiveness of care. The Centre will create a safe space for children and their families and help to prevent future child abuse through support and community education.
The cheque for $25, 212.63 was presented to the Kelowna Foundation on Sept 26 and officially marked the projects first large community donation. This donation is part of a three-year commitment that Boyd Autobody has made to support the Child Advocacy Centre project.
The CAC is the primary project of the Kelowna Foundation for Hope & Social Innovation (KF) who is spear-heading the $6 million campaign to bring the project to life in Kelowna. “We are so grateful to have been chosen to work with Boyd’s over these next three years as their charity of choice. The car show has such an amazing following and so much support from our community. The opportunity to be associated with that story is so incredibly valuable,” says “KF” Executive Director, Ginny Becker.
“This is the first time Boyd’s has made a multi- year commitment to a cause,” shared Methal Abougoush, Regional General Manager for Boyd Autobody & Glass Okanagan. “We are so committed to seeing the CAC project come to life, we will do everything in our power to ensure they reach their goal,” continued Methal. “I have kids of my own, as a human being I can’t imagine a better place to give back than in protecting and helping the children of this community.”
