Included in the activities of the 2009 Canadian RV & Camping Convention held in November at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, were a fund-raising silent auction and a leisurely, fun-and fund-raising harbor dinner/casino cruise. Funds raised from the two activities totaled $9,498. Eleonore Hamm (left), president of RVDA of Canada, recently presented on behalf of the Canadian RV and Camping Industry Planning Group (CRVIPG) a check for the proceeds to Robin Zylstra, development assistant at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Canuck Place Children’s Hospice provides specialized pediatric palliative care for children living with a life-threatening illness and support for over 370 families throughout British Columbia at no cost. The 24/7 care and support is provided by a diverse group of healthcare professionals, support staff and volunteers.
