Bottles for Boobies asked for the community's empties in support of Kelly Shires Snow Run, and the community stepped up.

“We've taken probably six loads [into the store] already,” said Kari Baker before noon at a collection location they had set up adjacent to the Beer Store entrance in Port Elgin, June 25.

Baker said she and fellow organizer, Amy Gregorio, arrived at 9:30 and people started arriving with their empties before they were fully set up.

All told the group raised $950 between cash donations and empties. “We had a fantastic day with some awesome support from an amazing community,” said Gregorio June 25, adding that the staff at the Beer Store was “awesome”.

Congratulations to Joanne Poole who won a draw for a $50 LCBO gift card.
