COVID-19 Sparks Generous Offer

June 2020 marks the 25th anniversary for Ladysmith Family and Friends (LaFF).

During this difficult time for everyone LaFF has been presented with an unprecedented opportunity by a generous local couple, Karen and Fred Green, owners of The Jailhouse Brewing Company, which is developing the old Ladysmith RCMP station.

“Karen and Fred Green invited me into their home for a virtual chat,” said Jacquie Neligan. “They have been friends of LaFF for years and wanted to know how they could help the families. When our Zoom visit was over, I had a promise of $25,000 so LaFF could purchase the technology to connect the families to LaFF programming and something else I think is unprecedented in philanthropy in BC, they have also pledged $100,000 in matching funds if LaFF can raise $25,000. That’s a four to one match and a tremendous opportunity for our family resource program.”

How does this Donation Plan work?

Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.

An opportunity to raise $150,000 in this fashion does not come often. With the Green’s generous donation and 4:1 matching offer, there is a tremendous opportunity to elevate and transform a valuable community service that reaches thousands of participants each year. Please join our whole community in celebrating LaFF’s 25th Anniversary.
