The sun shone over the Peninsula News Review’s 100th anniversary party on Sept. 22 as groups from all over the Peninsula banded together to raise money for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.
Musicians, local businesses and countless volunteers gathered at Heritage Acres to put on an afternoon of entertainment, food and fun for everyone to enjoy.
Face painting, Panorama’s inflatable obstacle course, Rotary Games, visits from Cookie Monster and Tigger (courtesy of Victoria Costumes), and an appearance by Island Farms’ Daisy the Cow and Farmer Vicki wowed the children during the celebration.
Music by Chick Wagon, Fir Cone, The Archers, Chris Ho and the Stelly’s Jazz Band delighted the older crowds during the event. Free pie and ice cream provided by Fairway Market put the cherry on top of an already fantastic day.
A by-donation barbecue provided by Co-op and admission donations in to Heritage Acres netted a grand total of $2573.41 during the event. The total amount will be directly donated to Black Press’ Tour de Rock rider, Kyle Slavin, and his personal fundraising efforts.
