Castlegar Search and Rescue gets early Christmas gift

Boston Pizza donated $1,107 to local search and rescue group

The Castlegar Search and Rescue Society has received a Christmas bonus thanks to a sales competition at Boston Pizza.

Servers at the local restaurant sold gift cards good for five children’s meals to patrons with the proceeds benefiting both the Boston Pizza Future Prospects Foundation and a local charity.

The local franchise awarded the server who sold the most cards the privilege of choosing the charity that would receive the $1,107 gift.

Molly Moore-Parsons chose Castlegar Search and Rescue (CSAR) as she is an active part of the local sledding community and sees the value in the work CSAR does.

CSAR has recently purchased two new snowmobiles and the donation will go towards training with them.
