Cookie Monster says “eat cookies”

Proceeds from Smile Cookies campaign will go to Kitimat and Terrace

Two tough cookies from Kitimat and Terrace are squaring up for a battle to raise dough for a worthy cause.

When the chips are down, Janet Tomayer and Ron Bartlett will try to raise the most money selling Smile Cookies on behalf of Kitimat’s General Hospital Foundation and Terrace’s Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation.

Initially, the two squared off for an arm-wrestling contest, but it turned out to be a rather half-baked idea.

Of course, not prone to using floury words, the two decided on a battle with a difference.

Janet: “I bet Kitimat can sell more Smile Cookies then Terrace!”

Ron: “Oh yeah, well I think Terrace can sell more Smile Cookies than Kitimat!”

To help Kitimat win this noble contest, don’t forget to get your batch of Smile Cookies which will be on sale at Tim Hortons in Kitimat and Terrace from Monday, September 16 until Sunday, September 22.

All the bread raised from this year’s campaign in Kitimat will go towards the dementia care home project.

Funds for Terrace will go towards the purchase of a high-tech ophthalmic surgical microscope at Mills Memorial Hospital.
