As reported on Blackburn News…
The owners of Preferred Towing are holding a special fundraising screening to launch the fourth season of Heavy Rescue: 401.

The program features dramatic recoveries along Ontario’s 400 series highways.

Money supports Gary and Tammy Vandenheuvel’s Ohana Landing youth housing facility at the former ABC Daycare on London Road.

The cost of renovations was over $1.5-million, which was higher than initially anticipated.

Gary said fans will have the chance to get a sneak peek at an upcoming episode before it airs.

“They do a great job,” said Gary. “They condense what we do out on that highway. Some jobs can take anywhere from two to eight hours, and we’ve had some that were upwards of 12. They cut it down to 20 or 30 minutes for our portion of it and they do a great job of putting it together and showing what we do out there.”

Ohana Landing has been operational for about five months. It has seven individual units that can house up to 11 youth aged 16 to 24.

Tammy said it’s been well used so far.

“Currently, we have two single mothers who each have a baby. That’s really awesome because it gives the child a better start as well. Our community supporter is Rebound. They come to the facility and they check on the kids, take them to appointments and do programming with them to make sure that they can use this opportunity to move forward.”

The event is being held at the Dante Club on Saturday, January 4, from 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

Tickets are $30, and include a pasta dinner, cash bar and silent auction.
The season premiere is being shown on January 7 at 10 p.m. on Discovery Channel.
