Bikes Bring in Big Bucks

Restorative Justice Society says sale set new precedents 

Released by Kathy Funk/CRJYA

 

Buyers check out the used bikes at the CRJYA annual bike auction last Saturday.

 

he annual bike sale for Restorative Justice & Youth Advocacy brought in over $6,200 which will go directly towards the work of this great program in our community.

 

Peter Devette, Restorative Justice executive board member & sale coordinator says, “Thank you to the people of Chilliwack for supporting our event in such a large way this year”.

 

This year the association added a car wash, bake sale & concession stand which added to the funds raised. Executive Director Kathy Funk commented “it takes a group of volunteers to make the event happen and we want to thank all of our community volunteers for helping out”.

 

By supporting this event, was a Win/Win for both Restorative Justice and for those looking for a good deal on a bike? Bikes left after the auction went to the Chilliwack Lion’s club to help with the great work that they do in our community.

 

Thanks Chilliwack for supporting Restorative Justice & Youth Advocacy.
