As reported by The Journal Pioneer, Saturday night (June 13) marked Go RVing Canada’s first National RV Weekend, as Twin Shores and 10 other campgrounds across Canada participated in raising money for Make-A-Wish Canada.
Susan Cousins, a Twin Shores employee, said they sold over 200 lights for $2 each. Some people donated more than the set price as 100% of proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Canada, which grants wishes to children facing life-threatening medical conditions.
At 10 p.m. local time, the 11 campgrounds had participants make a wish while either releasing their open flame lanterns into the sky, or due to regulations in some provinces including P.E.I., there was a lantern Wish Garden of LED flameless tea lights.
Cousins said the lanterns around the pond made for a beautiful sight, and was happy so many campers and attendees had taken part in the event to have fun and raise money.
