It has been a major fundraiser over the last six years for the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation, and it’s starting up again.
The 7th Smile Cookie Campaign kicked off Monday morning, with members of the Foundation on hand to launch the event at Tim Hortons Barry’s Bay location. The chain will be selling the special cookies until September 19th. They will be selling for $1 each, with all proceeds going to the Foundation.
Erin Geinow, Executive Director for the Foundation, says over the past six years the event has raised over $31,000 for the Foundation. This year the Foundation’s goal is to raise $6,500.
Jason Armstrong, owner of the Barry’s Bay Tim Hortons franchise, says the location typically does well in cookie sales for the week. In years past, the location placed sixth among Eastern Ontario locations for total cookie sales.
