Youth Activities

Home Hardware Car Show

Home Hardware Head Office - Henry Street, St. Jacobs

Saturday, May 27, 2017 from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Rain Date - May 28, 2017

Join us as we will be raising money and collecting Teddy Bears for Grand River Hospital Emergency Room. Young children who arrive at the hospital for care in emergency are able to receive a teddy bear for comfort while they are in the hospital and they get to take it home.

Last year we collected 284 stuffed toys, and almost $1500 from raffle ticket sales and 50/50 draw tickets, all of which went to Grand River Hospital for this worthy program. Mark it on your calendar and join us for this fun event and help us bring comfort to kids when they need it most!

If you would like to help next year or know of someone who would like to help us - please contact Rob Perry at 519-404-1447.
