As Prince Rupert high school student Brianne Bartel is getting ready to help a family in need in the Dominican Republic, one local business is helping her make the biggest impact possible.

Cathy Horcoff of Dundee Securities read about Brianne’s undertaking, and will be hosting a barbecue outside of the company’s office at 519 Second Avenue West on June 15 to help raise money for the cause. The barbecue will take place from noon to five p.m., with Overwaitea donating food, and all proceeds will go to Brianne’s trip to the Caribbean.

“I’ve known Cathy for a while now, and when I heard what she was doing, I thought it was amazing that someone would do that for me,” said Bartel.

“I’m just very happy.”
