“The book was published in early December and marketed locally in the valley. It has done very well, and I am so happy to make this first donation to Project Watershed. I have pledged to contribute a portion of the profits to my two favourite charities, Project Watershed and BC and Alberta Guide Dog Services, and I am hoping that this donation will be the first of many,” says Horgen. This donation has been earmarked for Project Watershed’s “Keeping It Living” art fundraising campaign, which runs from May 12 – 31 at the Pearl Ellis gallery.
