“COVID-19 is definitely having an impact on the number of people needing the services and support of Lush Valley and the Comox Valley Food Bank and we want to do our part,” said Nicole Gavac, President of Rotary Club of Comox Valley. 

“Things have changed for Rotary, too. We’re trying this new way to raise funds in response, so we can continue to help the growing number of residents in need.”

Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise president, John Frisch, said the goal is to raise $17,000 for two essential, local organizations that are working to ensure that everyone in the Valley can eat.

“At the same time, the raffle will support our local food providers, like growers, food retailers, and restaurants,” Frisch added.
