Santa PAWS Fundraiser

On Sunday November 29th, Big Sky Golf Club hosted the Santa PAWS Fundraiser. The event featured a Silent Auction as well as photos with Santa for locals & their pups! All proceeds from the event went to the Pemberton Animal Well-Being Society & there was an amazing amount of support from the community! 

The Pemberton Animal Well-Being Society is a local, non-profit organization that was developed to provide support and relief to local animals in need. The shelter runs solely on donations provided to the community and relies heavily on volunteers to keep it going. As this organization is our only local animal rescue shelter in Pemberton, it was great to see how the community came out to the Santa PAWS Event to show its support!

AC Gas was happy to contribute 5 x $20 Gift Cards to the Santa PAWS Silent Auction as auction items.

The total amount raised by the event was $9,280.80! Such an amazing community effort for a local non-profit organization. Happy Holidays everyone!

This year, the legendary Pemberton Barn Dance was BACK! Held in Pemberton's new Downtown Barn on September 26th, the event hosted Dakota Pearl & the Chris Buck Band. The event SOLD OUT, with 400 attendees. Proceeds from the event went towards community projects run by the Pemberton Lions Club & Rotary International. 

AC Gas & AC Petroleum donated 26 propane tanks for the event, which kept all of the heaters going for the night! We were proud to be a sponsor of this awesome community event, and were amazed by the turnout. Already counting down the days until next year! Yeehaw!

Golf Tournament Fundraiser

On September 17, the Pemberton & District Health Care Foundation held a golf tournament at Big Sky Golf Club to raise funds to support health care in the Pemberton Community and the Sea-to-Sky corridor. The Health Care Foundation is a non-profit charitable society, and funds raised are put towards both minor & major health care equipment, local senior and youth programs, health care programs & initiatives, renovations to the medical center, and education programs. 

AC Petroleum & AC Gas were proud to sponsor a hole at this year's event. Our fuel drivers - Ian, Tank, and Rob - played in the tournament, as well as the head mechanic, Rhys, from our sister company Lizzie Bay Logging!

There was a total of 104 golfers in the tournament, and the Health Care Foundation managed to raised $26,000 overall! We are already getting excited for next year's tournament, which will be held on September 15, 2016! 





Lunch Wraps Now Available at AC Gas

To celebrate the kick-off of back-to-school season, we offered a lunch special at AC Gas! The special featured delicious, freshly made lunch wraps from Mount Currie Coffee Co. For $8,  you could get a chicken, ham, turkey, or veggie wrap, and a drink! This special was a hit with high-school kids, as well as local employees working at stores situated around the gas station. These lovely folks are all big fans of Mount Currie Coffee Co., but weren't always willing to make the trek to the other side of town to grab their lunch. So, offering their scrumptious wraps at the gas station was a no-brainer, really! 

We are thrilled to be able to offer local, freshly-made food at the gas station. And since the special went so well, we are excited to announce that we will be continuing to offer Mount Currie Coffee Co. wraps at AC Gas! The wraps will now be $7 each, and will not be bundled with any specific beverages. If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the friendly staff members at AC Gas. 

Enjoy! 

Throwback to Canada Day

This year AC Petroleum & Lizzie Bay Logging joined in on the Canada Day celebrations in Pemberton! In the parade, we had an AC Petroleum fuel truck & a Lizzie Bay pickup truck clad with red & white balloons and Canadian flags. Some of our staff members even walked in the parade as well, and handed out beach balls from the back up of the pickup truck! 

The parade came to an end at the Community Center, and the Post-Parade Celebration began! There was various tents set up with local businesses selling their fresh produce or handmade goods, live music, kids playing in the water park, games, and so much more. Our staff were at the AC Petroleum tent handing out AC & Lizzie Bay beach balls and AC tattoos, and selling ice cream bars from AC Gas. All proceeds from the sales of the ice cream bars were donated to the Pemberton Children's Center - & we ended up raising $250!

It was a great day, and these amazing photos from Amie at LeBlanc Studios made it even better. 

Not to mention these photos of Alison's adorable son Rudi!
