tim hortons childrens foundationDear Sue, and friends at Group 74,

On behalf of the Tim Horton Children's Foundation, thank you for choosing our organization to be the beneficiary of the funds raised at Summer ArtFest. The Tim Horton Memorial Camp in Parry Sound, will greatly benefit from your donation of $500.00. While at camp, our campers strive to achieve their five G.R.E.A.T. beads. The 'Orange Bead' represents "Adventure, Creativity and Discovery" and creative arts programming at camp is one of the ways the campers can achieve this goal. Your donation will help us to expand our art materials and allow the children to further explore their creativity.
