Search and rescue fundraiser a complete success
The Logan Lake’s Search and Rescue Hot Dog and hot music last Saturday was a great success.
The lovely warm weather together with the exceptional tunes supplied by Logan’s Run, an amazing community musical group, worked to bring folks out to the amphitheatre. And, Logan Lakers were joined by many tourists who just happened to be downtown and took an active role in the fundraiser. SAR members did a great job “dishing up” hot dogs, smokies and pop by donation and the response was even better than anticipated which caused several return trips to Highland Valley Foods for more supplies.
And, here again, as so often happens with community events, HVF’s generosity, at the end of the day, made a substantial difference in the final amount of funds raised.
In fact, SAR members were very impressed with the community response which saw more than $1,100 raised.
However, more than $9,000 is still required.
If you weren’t able to attend the fundraiser but would like to contribute to SAR’s Building Fund, here’s another special opportunity. Why not make a donation to have your name, or the name of your business or community group added to the wall plaque which will decorate the new SAR building? With a donation ranging from $20 to $5,000 or more, or anything in between, you’ll be issued a tax receipt and invited to the unveiling of the plaque at the official opening of the building.
