Letter: Third-annual January for Jesse a rousing success

'Jesse would be proud'
January for jesse Whistler SAR fundraiser at the beacon
A fundraiser at the Beacon Pub & Eatery raised thousands for Whistler Search and Rescue (plus a hefty bar tab for Whistler ski patrollers) in memory of bartender Jesse Van Roon, who died in an accident on Whistler Mountain in January 2021. Pictured is the Beacon crew posing with last year's January for Jesse cheque.

Last week The Beacon Pub & Eatery presented Whistler Search and Rescue with $9,200 in honour of Jesse Van Roon. Our third-annual January for Jesse event was a great success!

A massive thank you to all of the businesses who donated to make this fundraiser possible, and to our amazing community for coming out to support the cause. Jesse would be proud.
