The challenge is on! Jocelyn Brunner, owner of Summit Footwear and Fashion downtown Invermere, is challenging other small business owners to donate to the Columbia Valley Centre. In fact, she will be matching all donations up to a total of $25,000!
“I’m excited about the new community centre” says Jocelyn. “It is vital to our community and our local businesses that we offer a quality venue to accommodate conferences, weddings, community events and festivals. It opens the door to year-round visitors and exposes our valley to new clientele. I look forward to attending the first event!”
The Columbia Valley Centre fundraising committee is extremely grateful to Jocelyn for leading the challenge. Once the final amount is determined the business community can allocate where the funds will be spent; the main hall, the retractable seating, the moveable partition to name a few. The challenge runs until January 19, 2017. “Like” the Columbia Valley Centre on Facebook to stay up to date on the challenge.
Businesses who wish to accept the challenge can visit www.ColumbiaValleyCentre.ca to make a donation. Donations are also accepted at the District of Invermere Office. Tax receipts will be issued.
