We advertised this as a great gift idea for Father’s Day ; our amazing group of youth did something very special for this car wash, their last CLAY (Canadian Lutheran & Anglican Youth) fundraising event. We have a group of 13 people from our diocese attending the conference in Kamloops B.C. this August. We had already raised enough funds to attend this conference and the youth unanimously decided that all proceeds from this event would be used to help other kids who would love to go but cannot afford the cost. How proud we all are, of this incredible act of kindness! The response from the organizers of the CLAY Conference when advised of this offer is below: Registrar: “Thank you SO MUCH for your generous offer to help out another group!
I was just so excited to read your email this morning, and it’s really stayed with me all day. This is exactly the kind of community that events like CLAY promotes, and I’m so pleased to be a part of facilitating it!”
With our friends, Monique, Nora and Lily from the Parish of Huntley, Rachel from St Matthews and the awesome support of our friends and incredible parishioners, we raised $810.00 and counting! The diocese has agreed to match us dollar for dollar up to $500.00. So we will be sending $1310.000 to ensure 2 other home teams are able to attend! What a proud day for us!
