Courtney Vreeman created T-shirts to fundraise for wildfire victims

Clay Bremner (left) and his wife Courtney Vreeman with their sons Charlie and Cash attended a fundraiser in Chimney Valley for Pat and Lorraine Jasper who lost their home to wildfire last August.

Vreeman owns her own business — Creatively Courtney — which she started a year ago. She recently won the Williams Lake and District Chamber Business Excellence Award in the Home Based Business category.

During the wildfires she decided to make #bcstrong items and fundraised $3,150 for a family who lost their home at Spokin Lake.

Through making the #bcstrong items she had some requests for Riske Creek items so she started a separate fundraiser for the two families in Riske Creek that lost their homes and raised $900 for them.
