Gilmore Gardens Resident Council has been busy fundraising this holiday season. They, along with staff, helped organize a Craft & Bake Sale, plus a Prize Draw Raffle, which together provided our local Christmas Fund and Food Bank with some holiday cheer. Together the Gilmore team sourced donations from the community and suppliers, helped host the sale, invited the community to participate, sold raffle tickets, and put the proceeds towards these two special charities.

The $1,000 cheque was personally delivered at the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Luncheon on December 10th. Sally Houston – Council President was unable to attend.
A similar cheque was then delivered to the Richmond Food Bank.
Congratulations team Gilmore and a special thank you to all who contributed, donated and purchased!
