This year our fundraising team kicked off the season with an incredible fundraiser! Walden Ringette athletes sold Joyful Home candles! For every candle purchased you knew that your money was 100% being spent locally in Walden.
Joyful Home is a local Walden family run business. In 2018 Diana started creating candles in her kitchen and learning the art of candle making. It wasn’t long before she was selling out and making more! Eventually you could see Diana and Alysha every day at their shop in the Pinehill Plaza where they sell their beautiful candles as well as many items from other local makers! In 2021 Diana lost her battle with AML and her family knew that they had to carry on her legacy. Walk into Joyful Home today and you’ll meet Cory, Diana’s incredibly supportive husband along with her always cheerful daughter Alysha.
As a local association we were fiercely proud to be supporting an amazing family run business. You couldn’t support anything more wholesome than this!
But how did we do? The candle fundraiser was a huge success! As a league we sold 746 candles – raising a (insert drum roll) grand total of $7,653.96 for the WRA!! No one expected that much of a profit, but we’re really excited about it! Cory from Joyful Home is also onboard for next year too!
The top 3 sellers were (in order below):
1. Aliisa Rintala- Fun2
2. Aurora St. Pierre – u12K
3. Alice Young -Fun2
We are looking forward to our next fundraiser!
