The Sidney chapter of the Army, Navy and Air Force veterans club made a sizable donation to the Sidney Lions Food Bank last week.

ANAF Unit 302 hosted its 10th annual Christmas Pool Tournament and Silent Auction Dec. 2 and donated all the proceeds to the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

“Between the ANAF and the Ladies Auxillary, $4,000 was raised for the Sidney Lions Food Bank," said Special Events Coordinator, Charmaine Lee.

The organization also collected and will be donating several boxes of toys to the Secret Santa: Toys for Tots drive as well.

"The pool tournament started by Chantelle Ingham was originally organized to collect toys for underprivileged children," explained ANAF Sports Chair Gaye Phillips.

"(The tournament) has grown over the years and is always a fun filled event and ANAF has now become a drop off center for the drive."

Sidney ANAF Unit 302 is the largest Army, Navy and Air Force veterans club in B.C. with 672 members.

For more information call 250-656-3777 or drop by 9831 Fourth St. Sidney after 11 a.m.
