2016 was another successful year for Operation Red Nose.
Over 140 people including volunteers and family members came out to celebrate with a night fun, food and friends.
Operation Red Nose runs each holiday season in the Quinte region, getting people and their vehicles home safe from festivities.
Longtime volunteer Peter Clark has been involved with the operation since 2009, and says there are many reasons he continues to come back.
250 volunteers got 2986 people home safely during Operation Red Nose 2016.
Between donations and sponsors, $396,000 was raised and will go back into the community.
$30,000 has already been allocated to the YMCA , and $10,000 to Camp Trillium.
