The Prince George Cougars Society continue their support of the United Way of Northern B.C.

The Cougars presented the group with an $18,000 donation this week.

“The Prince George Cougars Society is honoured to have been able to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past few years to support a wide variety of charities, none more deserving than the United Way of Northern BC and the many important agencies under their umbrella,” said Cougars Vice-President, Business Andy Beesley.

Beesley adds that the Cougars look forward to many more years of supporting the community and will soon announce more mega jackpots for next season.

The Cougars and the United Way of Northern BC partnered for a very successful Mega 50/50 Jackpot on March 9, which nearly reached $40,000.

“We are so grateful to have partnered with the Prince George Cougars for this exciting event,” Roberta Squire, CEO of the United Way of Northern BC. “The money raised will provide funding to multiple organizations in the United Way Family of Charities. In reality, many organizations can’t market or fundraise on their own and depend on United Way to raise awareness on the impact they have in our community.”

 Over the course of the last four years, the Prince George Cougars Society has donated in excess of $631,000 to various local charities and community groups.
