A4K (Athletics for Kids) Cocktail reception at Hollyburn Country Club

Nov 10, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


They've helped hundreds of kids and raised thousands of dollars and still, after six years of fun and fundraising, they continue to grow and prosper. The committee members behind A4K (Athletics for Kids) believe that all kids deserve to plays sports, no matter what their income. Their signature fundraiser, a title card boxing gala held in April at Hollyburn, is only the beginning. But getting that event ready starts early, like this past week where a special cocktail reception was held in honour of all the hard to done, and all the hard work to come.
