Windows of Hope raises a record $27,000
Local businesses joined forces with the Richmond Auto Mall Association for another record-setting fundraiser.
The 10th annual Windows of Hope, which saw windows to businesses and car dealerships at the mall decorated by sponsoring businesses and organizations in festive Christmas designs and colours, raised $27,000, topping the record set in 2012 of $24,000.
A total of 22 windows are painted, and the public is invited to check them out as they will remain on display throughout the month of December.
Proceeds from the Windows of Hope are earmarked for the Richmond Christmas Fund, which makes wishes come true for more than 2,000 low-income local residents.
Everyone is handed a grocery voucher, with nearly 1,000 children under the age of 15 also receiving toys or gift cards which have been donated to the program
