Saturday's Royal Hotel garage sale to donate proceeds to BC Firefighters Burn Foundation
Come one, come all to the Royal Hotel garage sale Saturday at the Baker Street location with all the proceeds going to the Nelson Fire Department Charity.
“The Royal Hotel is having a garage sale to clean up the basement . . . Owner/Manager Luke Menkes has decided to put the money towards a Fire Department charity,” said Nelson Fire Chief Simon Grypma.
“After consulting with the members of the department we have graciously accepted the offer and will put the money raised from the garage sale towards a donation to the BC Firefighters Burn Foundation.”
The Burn Foundation provides medical research and treatment to burn victims from across BC. Six or more residence from Nelson have benefited from the Burn Foundation.
The Burn Foundation also runs an outdoor camp for young victims of accidental burns. The Nelson Firefighters will be assisting in sending a young burn victim to the burn camp this coming summer.
“On behalf of the management and staff of the Royal hotel and the Fire Department, we invite everyone to the Royal hotel on Saturday (December7) to buy a piece of the history of the Royal and or just drop by to make a donation to the BC Firefighters Burn Foundation,” Grypma said.
