We were asked to present a cheque for the funds raised at the 2008 event on TV during the 22nd annual BC Children's Hospital Foundation Miracle Weekend Telethon. We'll be presenting the cheque on TV on Sunday, June 7 between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM. We're so excited about this!!

Unfortunately Sandra has a work committment that day, so I will be going as the representative of BC Crop for Kids. We've asked Hayley and Izzy to help us out as well because I'm not sure I could do it by myself. Thanks ladies!!!

We need your help!! Does anyone have a recordable DVD player that would be able to tape the cheque presentation for us?

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
