Tuktoyaktuk Finds a Friend in Northern
When their key sponsor backed out, the Beaufort Delta Education Council was left on their own to fundraise for the 4th Annual Friendship Sports Festival. As part of our community commitment to education and sports and recreation, Northern Tuktoyaktuk was happy to step up as the Festivalís major sponsor.
Held this year in Tuktoyaktuk, March 23rd-25th, the community school played host to over 250 people, coming from Inuvik, Aklavik, Fort MacPherson, Tsiigehtchic, Ulahoktok, Paulatuk and Sachs Harbour.
Northern supplied a $3,000 cash donation, as well an additional $1,000 of store credit.
The Beaufort Delta Education Council Sports Festival was started four years ago to build relationships among the youth in the Beaufort Delta region through sports. The purpose was to help the students get to know the people and the seven other communities in the Beaufort Delta.
