Cariboo Memorial Hospital Foundation members accepted a $9,284.89 donation from Tim Hortons Friday, Oct. 6 in Williams Lake.

Co-owners John Sharman and Alek Sharman earmarked their Smile Cookie campaign’s proceeds to the foundation.

“We iced 6,189 cookies,” said foundation member Tammy Tugnum. “The cookes went for $1.50 each.”

Tugnum said the money is a big boost to this year’s fundraising efforts.

The foundation’s 2023 gala, which was sold out by Sept. 18, is happening on Saturday, Nov. 18.

This year’s theme is Vintage Christmas.
