Falkins Insurance Group have charity BBQ

During the Christmas parade, the Falkins Insurance Group will be having a barbecue to help the less fortunate in Nicaragua.

Once again this year, during the Christmas parade, staff from the Falkins Insurance Group will be having a barbecue to help those less fortunate in Nicaragua.

Staff from the office will be coming in on the day of the parade to set up for what they hope will be a busy event.

“We are going to come to the office at 3 p.m. on the day of the parade and set up so we can start cooking for about 5 p.m.,” said Falkins staff member Chantelle Lacasse.

Lacasse explained that the money raised will go to help fund the building of a school while also helping to do renovations on another school in Nicaragua. Each year two staff members from Falkins are chosen from the different branches to be a part of the group to have a hands on experience. All monies raised, go to help in the cost of building houses or in this case a school.

The business is also holding two separate raffles to help raise funds. One is on a basket and the other is a jelly bean count. Both raffles will run until the second week in January and people can either take part at the parade or drop by the Falkins Insurance office on 9th Avenue North.

Lacasse would like to thank Overwaitea and Sobey’s who are donating the food and drinks for the barbecue. The Santa Claus Parade in Golden will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 5 p.m. However people can come put early to the event and spend a fun afternoon in the downtown core. A Golden Shop Local Holiday Extravaganza’ event will also be happening on the afternoon. People are welcome to come and while they are waiting for Santa and a great barbecue they will also be also to do some downtown shopping.
