Troyer Ventures holding fundraiser for Silverberry fire victim

Whatever’s raised by the event, which will also include a silent auction, will also be matched by Troyer. 

Robertson’s vacuum truck caught fire while unloading oilfield waste at the site near Mile 73 in the evening of September 10, and he was airlifted by B.C. Ambulance to hospital in Vancouver later that night. 

Troyer employee Lindsay Christian has organized the fundraiser, and says Robertson is now in stable condition and was able to speak with his family yesterday.

“He’s quite on track in terms of his recovery and where he should be,” she says. “They’re expecting him to be there for at least another couple of weeks.” 

The car wash by donation will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 9303 85th Avenue, with all vehicles from cars to big rigs welcome. 

Gift cards for his family and items for the silent auction are also being accepted by contacting Lindsay Christian or Conda at Troyer Ventures at 250-785-5332.
