Kitimat Firefighters Local 1304 Charity Committee raised over $12,000 for local Kitimat charities.
On June 25, the District of Kitimat hosted a free rock concert for the public that featured The Rats, Lithium, Fictional Kings and Sight & Sound Terrace. At the event, the firefighters union organized and operated the beer gardens for the event.
A grand total of $12,238.40 was raised as a result of the beer garden.
In a Facebook post, Kitimat Firefighters Local 1304 wrote, “we thank you for your support and a special thanks to all the generous volunteers who devoted their time in exchange for the success of this event.”
The union also said in their post, “with COVID slowing down we are hoping to continue to raise funds to support the citizens of Kitimat.”
The money will be spread throughout multiple local charitable groups including, Tamitik Status of Women, Kidsport Kitimat, the food bank and Kitimat Humane Society as well as many more.
