Project Description

CNOY 2024

Nelson CARES Society Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers are thrilled to be hosting the 10th annual Coldest Night of the Year event on Saturday, Feb 24th 2024.

Over the previous nine years, the community has raised close to $550,000 to support the most vulnerable in our community.

These funds raised by the teams, individuals, and sponsors stay in the community to fund the Ready for Home Program operating out of Ward Street Place. The Ready for Home program supports those residents in navigating healthcare, government documents, and many other challenges that allow them to remain safely housed.

Nelson CARES Society wishes to thank everyone involved in making these events such an overwhelming success.

Supporting Sponsors are Nelson Home Building, Urban Systems, Hemlock Homes, and Ellenwood Homes.

Route Sponsors Martin Hospitality Group (Hume Hotel & Spa), Derek Diener & Melanie Ward of Dominion Lending Centre mortgage brokers, Mistiso’s Place Vacation Rentals, InLand Allcare, Nelson Ford, The Adventure Hotel, Terus Construction (Nelson Ready Mix), and Lasca Construction Design

Media Sponsors were Kootenay Co-op Radio and Vista Radio, 103.5 The Bridge.
