HUGS in Brighton

Saturday June 25th, 2022, we had the pleasure of hosting a HUGS (Helping Ukrainians Get Settled) in Brighton fundraiser! Helping Ukrainians Get Settled in Brighton (HUGS in Brighton) is a not-for-profit (incorporation is pending) organization responding to the humanitarian crisis resulting from the invasion of Ukraine. The day included a BBQ while local musicians played, and local artists painted flower boxes to be auctioned off. It was an artistic and fun day with a great turnout! We are very pleased that we were able to be a part of such a wonderful event for such a great cause! All funds raised by the event went straight to HUGS to help these Ukrainian families in Brighton. A huge thank you goes out to all of the artists (Bernice Collingridge, Alicia Galambos, Viki Gills, William Clark, Elaine Gurney, Kimberlie Hood, Darla Allen, Payton Slimmons, Olena Remezovska), the musicians (Doug Couture & Steve Chalk), all of the volunteers, and sponsors (Coles Timber Mart, Brighton NoFrills, Brighton Sobeys, Dorland Farms, Willow Printing & Publishing, and Carpenters Bert Bowers & Oben Arsenault) for making this day happen!
