ROUTES YOUTH CENTRE Routes Youth Centre of Ontario has many fundraisers throughout the year! They have an Annual Din- ner and Silent Auction each year to fundraise for the centre. Each Fall they also have a Scrap Metal Drive where they collect scrap metal and old electronics to raise funds for the youth. PATHFINDER YOUTH CENTRE SOCIETY In August 2017, the annual Fiesta Blanca Charity Fundraiser was held for the Pathfinder Youth Centre Society. Fiesta Blanca is an all white attire summer event that offers a "wine country" experience in Metro Vancouver. Proceeds are used to fund Pathfinders' youth mentorship programs. PONOKA YOUTH CENTRE The youth of Ponoka Youth Centre have some fun with fundraising! Through March to May, they sell beautiful hanging baskets provided by Arbutus Nursery. They also hold a Race for Kids Fundraiser which consists of racing around town to complete 10 mystery checkpoints. These checkpoints can either be challenging, funny, or sometimes gross! Everyone has a lot of fun working as a team. 15 THE WAY (WAKEFIELD ACTIVITIES FOR YOUTH) COUPON BOOKLET In 2017, the WAY and Local business teamed up to make a coupon book- let that cost $20. They sold them to the local community and all proceeds went to the WAY. This supported the youth, WAY and local business. The youth got more funding and the local businesses got more customers.
