Victoria's Fundraiser

Thanks to everyone who participated in our annual RNST team fundraiser on Sunday January 13th. A total of $1300 was raised, simple by team members and friends dining at Victoria's on that day. Funds from this event help to support maintenance of the ski trails in Quarry Hill and Essex Park.

Many thanks to Kristin Sorenson who organizes this fundraiser, and to Victoria's restaurant for their generosity.
