EVENTS:

All of these events brought great days and new memories, we love being a part of all these events. One of our personal favourites was Hyundai for hunger:

This was an incredible event that the Cranbrook Hyundai dealership put on, they reached almost $4000 in donation. These donation went to the salvation army food bank, and to help provide other with full belly’s and happy hearts.
