Friendly Mike’s, Knights of Columbus and local businesses step up to support CPABC

The Knights of Columbus held a fundraising meat draw at Friendly Mike’s Pub on Friday April 29, and all the funds will support programs and services such as adapted yoga, dance and art at the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC. The evening also included a silent auction with prizes donated by local businesses. In all, the night was a great success, with the Knights of Columbus presenting the Association with a cheque for just over $1,000.

CPABC was first selected as a charity of choice by Friendly Mike’s Pub and the Knights of Columbus in 2006, and we hope the relationship continues. Cerebral palsy affects over 10,000 people in BC and is considered the most common childhood physical disability. It is estimated that one of every 500 babies and up to one in three low birth weight babies are affected to some extent. The Cerebral Palsy Association of British Columbia provides awareness, education and support for people living with cerebral palsy to realize their full potential.
