The Sicamous Volunteer Fire Department and the Eagle Valley Rescue Society received a financial boost courtesy of vendors attending the Sturgis North burnout competition in Sicamous.

The Sicamous Chamber of Commerce, who helped co-ordinate the local event, recently submitted cheques of $500 to the fire department and the rescue society. The $1,000 represents 100 per cent of the fees paid to the chamber by vendors to participate in the event.

Three of the 12 businesses that contributed to the $500 donations, also made specific donations to specific charities.

The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation received a donation from the Cedars Motel, Sicamous Dollar or More donated to the Eagle Valley Food Community Bank, and Eagle Valley Sports and Leisure received a donation from Inkx Design and Printing Solutions.

 

The chamber is grateful to the fire department, the rescue society, and everyone who helped out during  the event.
