October 3rd, 2019 “A GoldRush Thanksgiving” BONUS Draw Results:
On the third day of our “A GoldRush Thanksgiving” BONUS Draw we are extremely grateful to all our GoldRush participants for allowing us the opportunity to be in a position to participate in the Ex NIHILO SAPPER through the Canadian Armed Forces, the 5th Canadian Division/ 5e Division du Canada and 4 Engineer Support Regiment / 4 Régiment D’appui du Génie! Because of your support, our Phase 1 Renovation Project was accepted and allowed us to work with 500 Canadian Armed Forces members to begin this massive project and helped tremendously with the demolition!
With our involvement, we were able to learn about all the amazing work serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces do yearly to help not only our province, but also all of Canada! They work around the clock and do not stop until their mission is complete. No matter what the disaster, they are deployed in the harshest conditions to help communities get through whatever it is they are going through. Their dedication to helping us is a passion and to get to know the members was truly remarkable. So many of them have families of their own and when they spoke about our project, they would thank us for the opportunity to help our future generations as it is something that they would want for their families, children and youth back home, wherever that may be for them. Their sacrifice to help others through difficult times was truly inspiring and we are so thankful to be a part of their exercise!
Not only did they work around the clock to help renovate our facility, they also were heavily involved throughout our community and they provided so many services during their stay on our Island! Our members had many opportunities to listen to them and hear about how important it is to work together to strengthen our community and it is something that will surely stick with our members for a long time to come! Thank you to all the brave service members of the Canadian Armed Forces for your dedication and your service to our beautiful country and to all our amazing GoldRush participants!

On the second day of our “A GoldRush Thanksgiving” BONUS Draw we are so grateful to all our amazing GoldRush participants for allowing us the opportunity to award our community’s youth educational scholarships annually! To date we have given out over $100,000 in well deserved scholarships to our youth who have displayed the ability to be a positive role model to our younger members and to our community. We are extremely honoured to be able to provide these scholarship opportunities to our youth, but it is because of all our GoldRush participants that we are able to do so! Together, we can lead by example and provide so many opportunities for our youth and it is so amazing to be a part of and we thank you! By investing in our youth and providing scholarship opportunities, our community will benefit greatly and it is because of your support that this is possible!
We would also like to add that it is a privilege of ours to be able to recognize key figures in our organization and community’s past and to honour them through various scholarships. Without their efforts and countless hours of working with our youth, our Club would not be here today. Although they may not be on our current organizational chart, through these incredible scholarships their legacy will continue to impact our community’s youth through educational opportunities!
Don’t forget that it is not too late to get involved in this draw as we still have numbers available at all our sign-in locations! You can also call our GoldRush Coordinator Trena at 902-436-7874. Thank you all again for your support, together we are making such a big difference for our youth and providing them with the tools they need to succeed!

The first thing we are very grateful for thanks to the GoldRush is the completion of our Phase 1 renovation project to our Boys and Girls Club of Summerside facility this year! Because of your support, we have been able to completely update our facility to an absolutely beautiful space for children and youth to play and develop lasting friendships! Thanks to your support, we have been able to make our facility fully accessible for all as well as fully safe for our members by adding buzz-in/buzz-out entrances, an administration office, additional security features, a complete fire alarm panel and so much more! On top of that, we have been able to completely redesign the interior that maximizes not only efficiency for our programs but also maximizes on FUN for our members! This includes a new The Wing Summerside Garry MacDonald kitchen that will allow us to serve another 260,000 breakfasts in our Canadian Tire Breakfast Program as well as at least another 500,000 healthy, nutritious after school snacks in our Atlantic Superstore After School Program AND continue to offer amazing healthy cooking and baking programs! We now also have a sensory room for our community’s children and youth which combines a range of stimuli to help individuals develop and engage their senses through things such as lights, colours, sounds, sensory soft play odjects, swings and so much more in a safe environment! Whether our members are doing their homework, making their favourite crafts, playing a sport or activity in the gym, doing research in the technology centre, learning how to dance, practicing improv or getting involved in one of the 30 plus programs being offered, it is all thanks to you and your support!
