Keep the pledges coming. Thanks to you, we’ve already raised $2,275 to get the team to the provincials

What a day it’s been! The pledges and donations started rolling in early and they didn’t stop. The idea got started when Peter Weeber of the village and Mike Racz of the credit union suggested to me-Jeff King-that we could raise enough money to send the QC boys’ soccer team to the provincials. The problem was that we have only until Tuesday to do it. But with the publicity on this website and our Facebook site, we are almost half way to the necessary $5,000, after only 24 hours. It’s all possibly by the incredible generosity of the Queen Charlotte and Skidegate communities. We’ve seen it time and time again. And we are seeing in action yet again for this team. Keep the pledges coming to observer@haidagwaii.ca We’re going to get the team to the provincials, no problem.Thanks to the following for their generosity.
