It was a full house at the Khedive Recreation Centre on Friday, Feb 15th. The Pangman Emergency Services held their first successful fundraiser. 120 advance tickets sold quickly for the event.
A silent auction, live action (headed up by Rod Rowland), and raffle tickets were sold for a first prize of a Diamond Ring (Donated by York Jewellers in Weyburn), and a second prize of a Barbecue (Donated by the Pangman Coop). Winner of the diamond ring was Linda Schultz of Weyburn and the winner of the barbecue was Dorothy Howse of Pangman.
The Khedive group donated their hall free of charge to us and also prepared a wonderful Roast Beef Supper with all the extra trimmings, which also included a wonderful assortment in their dessert cart. E. Bourassa’s & Sons and Morris Equipment sponsored the Supper for us.
We had so much support for this event it was overwhelming. Thank you to everyone for auction items, cash and for sharing some stories with us when the Emergency Services were needed. Also, a big thank you to Linda Schultz, the Winner of the diamond ring who generously donated it back to us, and to Dorothy Howse the winner of the barbecue who also donated it back to us as well.
Monies raised will be going towards the purchase of a new ambulance and rescue truck. In the short time we had to plan, together we raised over $27,000.00!!!
Watch for upcoming fundraising events!
