Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign is taking to the air.
In an effort to raise money for the 100 Mile House Food Bank, the local Tim Hortons store has organized a 50/50 draw and an airplane toss at the 100 Mile House Wranglers Junior B hockey game on Saturday (Sept. 28).
The airplane toss will see sheets of paper imprinted with the popular Tim Hortons smile cookies sold at three for $5. Members of the public will then fold them up and toss them at a target at centre ice to win a prize.
“It’s very successful and very well-supported by the community,” 100 Mile House Tim Hortons owner Steve MacPhail says of the annual campaign.
“It’s unbelievable how this little community really rallies behind a cause. We’re off to a running start again this year. Cookies are flying off the shelf and we’re doing well.”
Game time is 7 p.m. at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre.
