Please join us in thanking the Silent River’s Kung Fu Benevolent Foundation. SCARS Volunteer, Amanda Foster, gave a short presentation about SCARS and accepted a donation of $3,000 at their annual banquet in late January. The Foundation has been extremely generous to SCARS over many years. Every year they host a banquet for their students to celebrate Chinese New Year and to award donations to the charitable organizations they support.
The Silent River Benevolent Foundation focuses on raising public awareness of global issues through the Chinese Lion Dance and various projects. They believe in teaching children strong values through their charitable projects and initiatives that improve lives locally and globally. They are based in Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Onoway, Parkland County, and Lac Ste. Anne County.
Those benefitting from their annual fundraising efforts include: Kidsport Parkland, the Northern Lights Wolf Centre, the Children’s Ability Fund, Atsikana Pa Ulendo – Malawi Girls on the Move, Second Chance Animal Rescue Society, the Tiger Temple (Thailand), the homeless of Kathmandu, the Town of Onoway Fire Department, the Onoway Public Library, and local students and schools through our Annual Scholarship.
We are very grateful to be included as one of the charities they support.
