Garden House book sale most successful yet

We would like to thank everyone who supported the Garden House Foundation Fund charity book sale recently held at Bonner School. A list of supporting businesses and organizations is available at www.gardenhousefoundation.wordpress.com

We would also like to thank the students and staff from Bonner School, Brentwood College, and St. John’s Academy as well as our trusty adult volunteers who all worked tirelessly, as usual!

The proceeds this year, including donations, was the highest yet: $14,170! As the permanent fund grows, so do the annual grants to Cowichan Family Life, Cowichan Women Against Violence and the SPCA Cowichan Branch, and will do so forever. We hope to see you all again next October, the weekend after Thanksgiving!
