World Cup Steveston raises almost $4,000 for playground
A World Cup celebration in Steveston raised $3,915 for the Rick Hansen Foundation, organizers announced Thursday.
During the recent soccer tournament, 32 Steveston businesses adopted a country for World Cup Steveston. Each business dressed up in its adopted nation’s colours, while celebrating on different days throughout the event.
The Rick Hansen Foundation welcomed donations throughout the tournament. Funds will be used to improve wheelchair accessibility at the Steveston Park playground.
At Monday’s city council meeting, Coun. Bill McNulty saluted organizers for an event that “created a great community spirit.”
