Athabasca Rotary Celebrity Dinner

On October 27th I was delighted to attend the Athabasca Rotary Club Celebrity Dinner featuring local boy done good Jay Onrait. Due to the generosity of both auction donors and bidders the club was able to raise $81,000 in a single evening. Kudos to auctioneers Pete and Wayne Kowalchuk for a fine job getting bids up. Net proceeds will go to the new Athabasca regional swimming pool

Not only did the event raise a lot of money, but people had a lot of fun doing so. Jay’s account of how he went from a small northern town to becoming an internationally recognized sportscaster was very engaging. Finally, the dinner, courtesy of local Elsa’s Catering, was fantastic .Thank you Athabasca Rotary for the wonderful evening and congratulations on a successful event
