Christmas came early this year in Red Deer! What better way to celebrate 2015 and the upcoming holidays than with your friends and family? Volunteering is one of the most important parts about our club and we're always looking for ways that we can give back to our community. From helping the Red Deer Food Bank by packing, stacking and sorting boxes to contributing to the Red Deer Action Group Society, we're working to make Red Deer better one project at a time!
We were honoured to be one of the main sponsors of Breakfast with Santa this past Sunday and we're proud to say that the place was packed with people young and old. Besides the delicious breakfast, the morning was full of fun events, including face painting, raffles, and even a silent auction! Although Breakfast with Santa was an amazing experience, our favourite part of the morning was being able to team up with the Kinnete Club of Red Deer to bring some holiday cheer at Westerner Park!
The Red Deer Kinette Club was formed in 1989. Ever since then, these hardworking women who are passionate about helping our city have been involved in numerous fundraisers and good works projects, including their Galas and Summer Raffles. Thanks to their efforts, they were able to raise $8000 for the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre (CASASC) at their booth during Westerner Days this year! (check out this blog post to learn all about their Westerner Days raffle). This isn't the last time we'll be working with them; stay tuned to see what we've got coming in the future!
