$5K Grant from Oak Bay Marine Group

As many of you know I’ve been employed at the Marina Restaurant (part of the Oak Bay Marine Group) for many years. It’s been a fabulous place to work–full of good people, good management, and some of the best food and views in the city.

But they’ve been more than that to me. They’ve been my friends, friends that have been nothing but supportive of HeroWork.

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 2.21.24 PMAs you can imagine, it takes great flexibility from an employer when one of their employees sporadically leaves to do community work. They have afforded me this flexibility. For this current project I’ve been incognito for several months. Without their support I wouldn’t be able to what I do. Without their support there is no way HeroWork would be where it is: about to reach over a 1 million worth of community renovations.

And now…they’ve just presented a grant to HeroWork for $5,000!

I am full of gratitude for this company and all they do. Special kudos to Peter Ciceri, Susan Barcham, and Lesli Ellis (who got the ball rolling).  Together we will make a huge difference for youth and our community.
