Hospital foundations from Terrace and Kitimat challenge public with smile cookie campaign

All proceeds will go towards the foundations

Terrace and Kitimat are at battle again, but this time it’s being done with a smile.

Terrace’s Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation and the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation are launching their ‘Smile Cookie’ fundraiser campaign at Tim Hortons from Sept. 16 to 22.

Besides just vying for bragging rights on which town is the sweetest, all the money raised from the smile cookies will be split between the two hospital foundations. Funds for Terrace will go towards the purchase of a high-tech Ophthalmic Surgical Microscope at Mills Memorial Hospital.

And to ramp up the competition, the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation is challenging anyone that purchases a cookie to take a creative photo and post it on their Facebook page for a chance to win a Tim Hortons gift card.
