Campbell River Hospice’s ‘Green Hornet’ finds a home

All proceeds from this raffle go directly back to the Hospice Society

After seeing the Green Hornet, as affectionately dubbed by the Campbell River Hospice Society staff, all around town this summer, the 2012 Mazda 2 made its final appearance on Sunday, Sept. 2 at the North Island Cruisers Show ‘n Shine.

In front of a large crowd full of anticipation, the Society drew for the winner of the Mazda 2 and free gas for a year.

And the winner is… Darcey Wood of Campbell River.

This year, for its Annual Summertime Raffle, the society acquired a 2012 Mazda 2 through Coastline Mazda and had the vehicle enhanced with tinted windows – donated by Tint Works; fancy wheels – donated by CCW; and had the car wrapped with creative graphics – donated by Epic Design.

While enjoying her new and peppy Green Hornet, Wood will not have to worry too much about filling up each month as Coastline Mazda has sponsored and provided her with free gas for a year.

All proceeds from this raffle go directly back to the Hospice Society.

Without fundraisers and support from the community, the society could not continue to provide, free of charge, the important services that it does for Campbell River and the surrounding area.
