News Review holding Tour de Rock fundraiser

Silent auction at the Prairie Inn in Central Saanich Sept. 14

SIDNEY — The Peninsula News Review is doing its part to help Black Press’ rider in the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock this fall.

The PNR will hold a silent auction fundraiser at the Prairie Inn on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 5 to 9 p.m. All of the funds raised at the event will go towards the efforts of Arnold Lim to collect for the Tour de Rock — which raises money to help children fight cancer.

To this end, the PNR is seeking donations from the community. Already there are items lined up, including a signed Trevor Linden poster, a gift basket from Urban Fare, gift certificates from Melinda’s Biscotti, Safeway and a paint store, four B.C. Lions tickets, four Victoria Royals tickets, a six-month pass to Panorama Rec. Centre and much more.

“We feel we should be doing something to help Arnold and his Tour de Rock team in their fundraising efforts. They’re doing the hard work, so we’ll have fun helping them reach their goals,” said publisher, Jim Parker.

The PNR is looking for auction items, large and small. Please contact Parker at 250-656-1151, ext. 6 or email publisher@peninsulanewsreview.com to donate soon.
