Kal Tire Place
Since 2001 Greater Vernon Services and the Vernon Multi Plex "Kal Tire Place". have been invaluable contributors to the Greater Vernon KidSport Fund. During the creation of the Vernon Multiplex, WestCoast Cash Inc, proposed a deal where $0.50 of every transaction service fee that was obtained through the Multi Plex ATM would be donated directly to the Greater Vernon services Commission Charity of Choice. The charity that was chosen was the Greater Vernon KidSport Fund. This source of revenue has been the financial backbone of the Greater Vernon KidSport Fund.
Choose Your Seat
“Choose Your Seat” is the adopted theme for Greater Vernon KidSport’s annual fundraiser. In conjunction with the Vernon and District Multi-Use Facility, we are going to have a “seat sale”. No we are not providing special prices on airline flights; our plan is to sell all 3000 seats in the Multi-Plex! To our knowledge, this is the largest single fundraising endeavor for KidSport in BC.
To date “Choose Your Seat” has raised $7000.00 for our local fund, but we have a long way to go. Each seat will sell for $175 each, $100 going to our local Greater Vernon KidSport Fund and $75 to support future Multi-Plex capital projects. Each seat purchaser receives a tax receipt for the $100 KidSport amount as well as having their name of choice engraved on a colourful plate attached to the seat back recognizing their contribution.
All funds raised will remain within our community and are distributed on an application need basis to our local disadvantaged youth. The legacy we are hoping to create is that no youth in our area are left out of sport due to financial and/or social obstacles. You can “Choose Your Seat” and assist disadvantaged youth within our community to have positive sport experiences this year.
