Customers line up at the Airport Coffee shop for pie in 2011.

 

ombining delicious homemade treats and a worthy cause, this year’s 4th Annual Pie Day is already generating buzz in the community and we invite you to join in on the mouth-watering goodness!

 

Travelers and locals alike have enjoyed the traditional menu and affordable prices at the Airport Coffee Shop for decades.

 

On June 24th, 2014 their pies just may be a little less of a “guilty” pleasure, as 100% of all pie sales will be donated directly to the Terry Fox Foundation. The Terry Fox Foundation differs from other charities in that 84 cents of every dollar raised is donated directly to cancer research.

 

This initiative has a particularly special place in our hearts, as it is conducted in memory of Terry’s mother, Betty Fox, who passed away in June 2011.


The coffee shop owners, The Good sisters, have been involved with the Terry Fox Foundation for years and have taught us that every community no matter how big or how small can make a huge impact, just as Terry learned when a small town of 10,000 people raised over $10,000.

 

Thanks to Judi, Tracey and Jacqueline, and their amazing staff, there has been an overwhelming response from the community of Chilliwack and beyond. Last year’s event generated over $5400 with a total of 336 slices and 216 whole pies sold, all in Betty’s name.


There are over 30 types of pie to choose from with a variety of options for purchase: whether a slice or a whole pie, to eat on the spot or order for future pickup at any other point during the year. Check out their menu online, or visit in person at 46244 Airport Road, Chilliwack B.C.


“If you’ve given a dollar, you are part of the Marathon of Hope.” The Fox family taught us that every contribution matters. Help us continue Terry and Betty’s legacy… all while satisfying your sweet tooth!
