You have to plant seed to harvest flowers, and over the holidays Galaxy Motors, with the help of our customers & staff, sponsored several charities on Vancouver Island in the spirit of the season.
As each event wrapped up, the organizers took the time to thank all the participants and they have sent some photos/info back to us with results on the effort to let everyone know the charity effort was deeply appreciated.
Earl Naswell Community Christmas Dinner in Courtenay
A Comox Valley tradition for 33 years, the Earl Naswell Community Christmas Dinner is a ton of fun for both local volunteers and the less fortunate residents of Courtenay that otherwise might not get a fancy Christmas dinner with all the fixings.
Thanks to the very generous donations, the 2015 charity dinner was an unquestionable blowout success. In fact, the Galaxy Motors donation, $75 from each vehicle sold, was the largest that the event has ever received to date!
The head organizer, Rob James, personally came by to say thanks during the Galaxy Motors boxing week sale and he promised to send along some photos to share:
Since the event is held on Christmas Day, the dinner was scheduled for noon to get the best turnout. Local musicians/bands performed for the guests and entertained everyone with Christmas carols, while hot cider was passed around.
Volunteers worked quickly to prepare dinner plates with an impressive selection of holiday food. Yum!
The Filberg Hall was packed with both guests and volunteers enjoying music, food, drinks, and dessert.
Smiling faces were plentiful with everyone enjoying the spirit, food, company, music, & hospitality.
With so much food donated, the residents and volunteers were all urged to take leftovers home with them! That’s the spirit we were going for and it’s great to hear the feedback that the dinner was a major success. We’d love to see this tradition carry on for a very long time so we’re happy to know that with this kind of support we’re guaranteeing future charity events.
