Camp Hurlburt named Aviva semi-finalist

Voting for the Semi-Finals begins on Monday at 9AM,   Just one out of seven local groups in the Canada-wide Aviva competition has made the cut.  Rebuild Camp Hurlburt is the last remaining local contestant in the Aviva Community Fund.  Hurlburt moves on to the semi-finals, against 89 other ideas from across the country. Each of the projects are competing to gain the most votes in their respective budget sizes.  Voting for the semi-finalists begins Monday and runs until Dec. 16 at Camp Hurlburt is idea number ACF10943 in the youth category and is hoping to secure up to $150,000 to help rebuild the camp.  The top 30 ideas will move onto the finals, where the judges will decide which ideas will be awarded grant money.  “We’re very thankful to everybody who has gotten us there because it makes a big difference,” said Jennifer Yeo, with the Camp Hurlburt Association.  “We just hope that everyone sticks to it and keeps voting, and vote every day.”
