SPCA BBQ – Grilling Dogs for the Dogs

SPCA BBQ – Grilling Dogs for the Dogs

On Sunday September 25th, the Charity Guys headed down to the newly-opened Bosley’s on Yates. The grand opening provided some great deals on pet food and pet supplies – and also a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the SPCA. Working together with both Bosley’s on Yates and the SPCA, the Charity Guys were able to man the BBQ for the afternoon and sell wonderful hot dogs and hamburgers to passer-bys. Feedback on the culinary experience was impeccable.

When all was said and done, almost $300 had been raised to help care for lost or unwanted pets. A great day and a great cause – you can’t beat that.

Sundaes on Thursday

Sundaes on Thursday

The Charity Guys have talked about serving desserts at Our Place for months now, and last Thursday, true to Charity Guy spirit, we made it happen! Market on Millstream was generous enough to sell us the supplies we needed at cost. We came prepared with buckets of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream as well as all the fixings including sprinkles, smarties, graham crumbs and whipped cream! As we set up the station a line was already beginning to form! The friendly folks at Our Place encouraged us with comments and words of excitement for the forthcoming treats. The staff was extremely helpful at making sure we had all the necessary serving tools and utensils. At 3:30 we were ready to rock! We soon got the hang of it and were serving up made-to-order sundaes in no time with a Charity Guy (and honorary Charity Girl) at each station. It was a huge success and we served every last drop of ice cream with excited patrons coming back for seconds, and even thirds.

Thanks everyone at Our Place. As usual we met a lot of great people, had interesting conversations and had some fun.

Yet Another Garbage Clean-Up

On Saturday June 18th, the Charity Guys once again embarked on a garbage clean-up mission. The destination was the Galloping Goose Trail. Although the weather seemed ugly in the morning, it turned out quite nice by afternoon.

The conversation was interesting as always and the trash bag filled up quickly. By the end, the trail was clean and we all got some exercise. It was yet another successful clean-up operation :)

Garbage Clean-Up at Willows Beach

On Saturday, April 2nd, the Charity Guys descended upon Willows Beach in Oak Bay to do some garbage removal and community clean-up. Although the weather was all over the map, the day was a success. We were able to clean the entire beach and partake in some entertaining discussions. It’s always a great time being able to hang out with the guys and help out in the community.

We look forward to doing it all again in a few weeks. We’re also looking forward to an upcoming blood drive, as well as a group outing to the Our Place Society!

    Garbage Clean-Up on the Galloping Goose

    A few weeks ago, the Charity Guys decided to clean up a 2-kilometre stretch of the Galloping Goose Trail near the Gorge. A few friends and family members came along to help out. Armed with contractor garbage bags, gardening gloves, and a wheeled garbage bin, we chose one of the wettest days of the year (unintentionally) to remove garbage from the trail and restore a more natural setting. Along the way, we found an old decomposing car seat, countless plastic bags, condoms, gardening pots, and many other strange finds. Filling 5 garbage bags and a garbage bin produced an entertaining, fun, wet day filled with friends and positive change in the community.

    Thanks again to our supporters and especially our satellite member, Eugene Henry, from Campbell River for coming out. See you out there again in early March to hit Dallas Road and Clover Point!

    Thanks for stopping by!
    -Charity Guys
