Ryley and Chloe’s Fun-raizer

Two girls, whose combined ages add up to seven, are collecting toys and donations for the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

“Auntie, Chloe and I want to put toys on the shelf for the poor children,” said Ryley Patterson on a recent trip to the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

Ryley, 5, a kindergarten student at Betty Huff Elementary School has been visiting the Christmas Bureau (SCB) and dropping off toys since she was three.

This year, Ryley took her friend Chloe Gravel-Fallis, who is two months short of her third birthday, with her.

When Ryley was asked if she wanted to do a fundraiser for the Christmas Bureau, she said, “I want to do a Fun-raizer because people should bring toys and toys are fun.”

On Friday, Dec. 12 from 5:30-7 p.m., Ryley and Chloe’s Fun-Raizer will take place at Olympia Restaurant, 10257 King George Blvd.

For $7 per person plus an unwrapped toy, each person will receive a spaghetti dinner.

The restaurant also has a small stage and Ryley and Chloe are planning to lead everyone in a few Christmas songs.

A jolly guest dressed all in red might be making a special appearance.

For those unable to attend the event, toys can be dropped off at the Christmas Bureau Toy Depot at 14885 108 Ave.

“It’s great seeing children so young wanting to help,” says KC Gilroy, co-ordinator of SCB. “I hope lots of people will support their efforts.”

Chloe’s reason for being involved? “Because it’s Christmas.”
