BEEF DINNER and SILENT AUCTION   – 2017

THANK YOU to all who made the 2017 Beef Dinner and Silent Auction a wonderful success!

A BIG THANK YOU to Chef Andrew from Brown’s Social House for the tasty roast beef.  We are so blest to have his volunteer support and his skills.

Thanks to Sherri Alstad for the FUN AUCTION and to her volunteer team.  Great job!

Thanks to Marge’s Dinner team: all those who provided salads, pies and buns, the tasty turnip casseroles and filled the many tasks on the Saturday and Sunday. Also to Betty Grunau for heading up set up and take down, and all those small details like scraping stations, buying plastic forks etc. It took 90 plus volunteers to put on this big fundraising event. A special shout out to the Youth who helped set up, bus and do dishes – I hope all the adults took note … YAY for our young people.Thanks guys!

Last of all THANKS to all the wonderful dining guests who came to share our evening, enjoy the great food and opened their wallets to bid at the Auction!!!  I loved the laughter, the visiting and the hugs for friends and family.

We fed 328 folks; Dinner made approximately $4600 and Auction made more than $2000!  I’d call that a success.  SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!!
