Annual KidSport fundraiser has generated $350,000 since 2009 helping local kids in need benefit from sports
On KidSport Day, Triple O’s donated a loonie from the sale of every combo to a local KidSport BC chapter. An additional 20 cents from their 20th Anniversary menu items were donated between September 10th – 29th. Every $400 raised gives a child the opportunity to play their sport of choice for a full year. Cash donations were also received by supportive guests throughout the month and @TripleOs donated a dollar for every retweet with the hashtag #SoALLKidsCanPlay.
Since the fundraiser’s inception, the initiative has raised $350,000, helping 875 kids build their confidence and skills through sports.
“I’m proud to say that we’re helping 240 kids play sports this year,” said White Spot Hospitality President Warren Erhart. “Donations stay in the communities where funds are raised, which is why KidSport is truly a grassroots program that supports kids across the province. As this year’s results goes to show, the spirit of Triple O’s guests and team members can’t be beat!”
