A team effort which raised $8,540 through the sale of Tim Hortons Smile cookies was recognized Monday at the local business. The money was raised for Sylvan Lake’s Urgent Care initiative.

Doug Gunn, Tim Hortons director of marketing for Western Canada, said the cheque represented the highest individual store sales of the popular Smile cookies in Alberta and far surpassed last year’s total of over $4,000 for the Sylvan Lake franchise. “It’s just a remarkable effort.”

Tanya Doucette added they were “beyond thrilled. This speaks volumes to how much the community wants this (urgent care) facility. We’re so grateful the people of Sylvan Lake and area are so supportive of these initiatives.”

During the campaign, members of the Urgent Care committee worked in the drive-through lane to drum up additional cookie sales.
