Another year, another record for Wendy's DreamLift Day.
Wednesday's fundraising event at Wendy's restaurants through the Southern Interior raised a total of $115,027.86 for the Sunshine Dreams for Kids Foundation.
Over the last 19 years, Wendy’s DreamLift Day has now raised an accumulative total of over $1,224,384.85.
The restaurants were assisted by volunteers from all walks of life. They added to the fun of the day by changing from their usual jobs in their communities to something very different: preparing hamburgers & salads, making fries, cleaning trays and tables and all sorts of other behind the scenes tasks that helped make the day such a great success.
The total includes the gross profits, wages and salaries from all the staff, management and ownership of the nine Wendy’s Restaurants in Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton.
The success of Wendy’s DreamLift Day would not be possible without the generous support from the community, Wendy’s customers, media, service/sports organizations, Wendy’s staff, management, owners and alumni.
A special thank you to the Orange County Sheriff’s who helped make this such a special day: Lieutenant Tom Behrens, Captain Tim Moy, Captain Bill Griffin, Captain Bob Peterson, Captain Mike Toledo and Marilyn MacDougall, Executive Director of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Advisory Council.
The next Wendy’s DreamLift to Disneyland is tentatively scheduled for December 2013.
