Focus on Fundraisers

By Charlene Wirtz

It’s that time again! Yes, the Kinsmen Foundation is gearing up for Telemiracle 38. The televised fundraiser will be March 1-2 this year, and some impressive local and not-so-local talent has been rounded up to help out Bob McGrath and Beverly Mahood.

Among the performers will be Prairie Pearls from Humboldt, Watson and Wynyard; Amy McDade from Raymore; Kids Can Dance from Regina; The Saskatchewan Dance Project from Saskatoon; and Saskatchewan Country Music Association Award winner Jess Moskaluke.

Leading up to the big event, our local groups and businesses are getting involved too.

The Telemiracle Helping Hands campaign has already started and will be a familiar sight in area businesses.

In Wadena, E&K Trophy is sponsoring its second annual pancake breakfast and jail ‘n bail in support of Telemiracle, with some associated fundraising activities like a 50/50 draw as well.

The Wadena Kinsmen/Kinettes Club will host a comedy night, along with a beer- and spirits-tasting and a Telemiracle auction.

The Watson Civic Centre presents Dancing for a Miracle this weekend.

The community of Quill Lake is planning a soup and sandwich fundraiser at the seniors’ centre.

No doubt as the month progresses there will be other fundraising events sponsored by local clubs. For details, watch for their ads in this and upcoming print editions of the News.
