Tonight’s ‘Ladies Night Out’ fundraiser helps Chilliwack fire victims

Back At You Thrift Store is hosting Ladies Night Out, a fundraiser to help a family that lost their house to a fire in Garrison Crossing.

The owners of Back At You Thrift Store on Yale Road, John and Beth Guliker, decided to hold a fundraiser on Saturday to help a single mother and her four children who lost their house to a fire in Garrison Crossing on Aug. 21.

All proceeds from the hot dog and pop sale went to the family in need. A customer of the store donated the meat, Canada Bread donated the buns, and the Gulikers donated the pop and condiments.

In addition, 75 per cent of net proceeds from the store on Saturday went to the Garrison Crossing family.

The store is also hosting Ladies’ Night Out tonight (Sept. 5) from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 each, half of which goes to the Garrison Crossing family, and the other half goes towards door prizes. The event features three hours of women-only shopping, a raffle, door prizes, coffee and tea, plus vendors such as Scentsy, Aloette and Grace Adele.

Tickets can be purchased at the store (3-45676 Yale Rd.) or at Dickens Sweets (45945 Alexander Ave.).
