“It was a damn good night,” says Kimberley Food Bank Direcor Malcolm Fruin of the Kimberley Dynamiter Friday night for the Food Bank. “The Dynamiters won which made it even better.”
Fruin reports that well over 400 people attended and food donations amounted to a value of over $2,000.
“That’s the largest we’ve ever had. There was an absolute mountain of food.”
There were also cash donations of $425.
The Food Bank fall raffle was drawn at the game as well. Winner of the first prize of $1000, furnished by Marc and Eleanor Poirier of Meadowbrook Greenhouses was Peter Munroe of Kimberley. Second prize of box tickets to an ICE game furnished BA Blacktop went to Jim Penson of Kimberley and third prize, two nights accommodation fro Kimberley Lodging Company went to Dennis Couture of Alberta.
The raffle brought in $4000 for the Food Bank.
“All in all it was a pretty big night for the Food Bank,” Fruin said. “The generosity of attendees was greater than ever. We’d like to thank everybody for coming and bringing something, and thank teh Dynamiters organization, who went out of their way to help us, and also Chalet GM, who provided a truck to transport the donations. It was a really good night.”
