Dynamiters host Food Bank night

Bring non-perishable food item to Saturday night's game

Each year the Kimberley Dynamiters host a Food Bank Night. This year the date is Saturday, November 24 at the Kimberley Civic Centre when the Nitros host Castlegar.

There will be three parts to this event, says Food Bank Director Malcolm Fruin.

“First you bring food which makes you eligible for draw prizes,” Fruin said. “We have over 20 prizes donated by Kimberley businesses.

“Then the fall raffle will be drawn between the second and third periods.”

The fall raffle offers a first prize of $1000 cash, donated by Meadowbrook Greenhouses, a second prize worth $750 – box seats for Kootenay Ice Game including refreshments, donated by BA Blacktop; and a third prize of $300 donated by the Edge Pub.

Finally, there will be a touque toss for the Food Bank’s Christmas hampers.

“We hope to make roughly the same as last year, which was $1500 in cash and food donations,” Fruin said.
