On Saturday, October 6 the United Conservative Party (UCP) will be hosting a dinner with Jason Kenny, leader of the UCP party at the Slave Lake Inn and Conference Centre.
The party starts at 6:00 p.m.
Susan Giesbrecht, Vice President of fundraising for the Lesser Slave Lake UCP, says anyone who is a UCP supporter can do their part and buy a ticket to the fundraiser.
Giesbrecht says tickets are $100 each and any ticket bought will come with a $75 tax receipt from the party.
Giesbrecht explains the money being raised through the fundraising dinner will be going towards operational costs for the association and also getting ready to run a campaign for the people running to become the candidate.
“It’s a good bang for your buck.”
Giesbrecht also adds local chef Tony Giesbrecht will be preparing a buffet for the event, featuring chicken and beef. The event will include an auction and local musician Will O’Donnell will be entertaining guests with his guitar.
Wayne Sharko, volunteer with the UCP, says they are also doing a fundraiser called the button campaign.
Sharko explains buttons will be a symbol to show people that you are doing your part in supporting the party.
The buttons are $5 a piece.
