Fundraiser held for friend’s surviving dog

Loki survived crash that killed Colin Law, needs help with vet bills



Friends of Colin Law are looking for some help to cover the cost of his dog Loki’s medical bills, following a motor vehicle accident in Vancouver on Nov. 20 that took Law’s life and seriously injured the dog.

Law and Loki were well known around Whistler. Law worked in several restaurants, including Quattro and Hy’s Steakhouse, and was the owner and operator of Wake 2 Wake Wakeboard Co.

Loki has already received emergency surgery and medical care, requiring plates to mend his broken bones. The veterinarian bills are also starting to pile up, and are close to $10,000 at this point.

The dog is currently staying with Law’s former girlfriend and Wake 2 Wake partner, who has paid for most of the bills by credit card, but will likely be adopted by one of his friends in Whistler.

Law’s friends have rallied on Law’s behalf to host a fundraiser to help with Loki’s emergency and rehabilitation costs, donating an impressive list of prizes for the event.

The fundraiser will take place on Dec. 15 at the Garibaldi Lift Co. Admission is $10 at the door, and there will be opportunities to buy raffle tickets at Citta’s and the GLC.

Prizes include a signed jersey and basketball from NBA all-star Steve Nash, tickets to the Vancouver Canucks, a snowboard from Leanne Pelosi, gift certificates to fine restaurants in Whistler and Vancouver (Quattro, La Rua, Baru’s, Boneta’s, RimRock, Cittas, Southside Diner, Ric’s Grill, Elements, to name a few), spa treatments, swag from Prior, Sno-Limo rides, photographs and more. Prizes are still being donated to the event.

Organizers are hoping to raise at least $10,000 and have committed to donating any additional funds raised to Playgroundbuilders in Colin’s name.

As well as the fundraiser, a trust fund has been set up at TD Canada Trust for donations. Contact Robert Colbourne to make donations at 604-966-7680.
