    COVER STORY

    Fair-ly helpfulFALL FAIR: | Exhibitors are being asked to give a hand up to Kuu-us Crisis Society.

    SUSAN QUINNALBERNI VALLEY NEWS

    The Alberni District Fall Fair is four days of fun and activities highlighting myriad factions of the community. But there is also a fundraising aspect to the fair.

    This year, the fair hopes to collect much-needed toiletry items for Kuu-us Crisis Services.

    Kuu-us tells us they are in desperate need of toiletry items in particular, so we

    are asking all of our exhibitors to consider donating an item, Fall Fair administrator Ann Siddall said.

    This is the first year they are asking their exhibitors to get in on the fundraising. Siddall said they typically

    get 300 people exhibiting everything from livestock to handmade, homemade and homegrown items.

    Even if we get 15 per cent of them, thats significant.

    Items can be dropped off in the two giant red baskets at the fair office when exhibitors pick up their exhibitor tags. Their names will then be put into a draw for a $50 gift certificate for Boston Pizza.

    The Fall Fair

    also collects food for the food bank. Anyone bringing a non-perishable food donation to the gate for the first hour of the fair on Thursday, Sept. 10 will get in for free. Last year we raised more than one tonne of non-perishable items, Siddall said.

    For more info about the Fall Fair, please go online to albernifair.com or a special wrap in the Thursday, Sept. 10 issue of the Alberni Valley News.

    need of toiletry items. Ann Siddall

    Staff members from RBC Royal Bank are prepared to shave their heads in an effort to raise money for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock when the riders stop in Port Alberni later this month.

    Losing their locks for Tour de Rock

    We have all been affected in one way or another by cancer a mother, father, aunt, uncle, cousin, or friend. RBC has devoted some of its favourite faces of the Port Alberni branch to help raise money for the Canadian Cancer Societys Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock between Sept. 125.

    The Tour de Rock is a 1,000-kilometre fundraising bike ride that law enforcement and media riders embark on in September, taking them from Port Alice at the north end of Vancouver Island all the way to Victoria over two weeks.

    Our goal, with your help, is to raise

    $5,000, branch manager Keith Schindler said.

    If they raise $5,000 then Schindler, client advisor Sukh Krishan, financial advisor Eric Matheson and banking advisor Brent Williams will shave their heads during the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock in honour of the family members they have lost: mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

    Donations will be collected in the RBC branch office on Third Avenue or by going to their team page at www.tourderock.ca, click on the donation link, click search for a fundraiser and click on RBC Port Alberni.

    Another group in

    Port Alberni is also doing some Tour de Rock fundraising. Boston Pizza is hosting Miles for Mihai, for mid-Island rider Mihai Ilioian RCMP constable in Nanaimo. The restaurant is collecting sponsorships for $1 a mile.

    By the time Ilioi finishes the ride, he will have cycled 2,479 training miles, and the ride itself is about 620 miles (1,000 kms). Boston Pizzas goal is $ 3,100 for 3,100 miles.

    The Tour de Rock riders will stop in Port Alberni on Friday, Sept. 25 around lunchtime. That night Boston Pizza will host a Fun Family Night from 5:307:30 p.m. where people can have dinner with the riders and enjoy carnival games outside.

    Tickets for the fun night are $15 for children and $20 for adults and are available now at Boston Pizza on Johnston Road. For more information, please call Tracy Berg at 1-250-668-6794.
