2nd Annual Cooking for KidSport Raises $18,000!
The 2nd Annual Cooking for KidSport fundraising event was held on April 12th and raised $18,000. After two previous postponements due to weather related issues, the 200 attendees were treated to a fantastic dining experience and some unique entertainment featuring some local celebrities showcasing some of their culinary skills.
The Holland Hurricanes are the 2018 “culinary” champions, while the Charlottetown Islanders received the honour of the most funds raised. The big winner on the night however was KidSport PEI…with a whopping $18,000 raised for the organization. After two years, the event has now raised over $34,000!
KidSport PEI believes all Island children should have the opportunity to experience the positive benefits that sport offers. Organized sport teaches children important life skills, such as leadership, commitment, teamwork and self-confidence. Staying physically active is important for everyone, and playing sports helps develop healthy lifestyles for children across Prince Edward Island.
A very special thanks to all of our 2018 teams and celebrity chefs, our sponsors and also all of the donors and contributors who helped us make this event a tremendous success!
