On Friday April 21, the Slave Lake Koinonia Christian School held its annual fundraising auction, to raise money for the school. It was held at the Legacy Centre, with approximately 240 people out to support the school.
There was both a live auction hosted by Ben Kellert, an auctioneer from Killam AB, and silent auction, with many assorted items including a vintage guitar, a handcrafted fire pit, and a scholarship hidden in a basket worth $1,800. A dinner including pulled pork sandwiches, salads, pie and ice cream were on the menu, served by school families.
“It was a fun event,” says Principal Elizabeth Lund. “These events are very important for our school, as we do not receive full funding as public schools do. Parents, volunteers, and students all work together to put on events like these, and our school is like family, as well as an educational school that teaches Alberta Curriculum K-12 with accredited teachers. We would like to thank the community for its generous support. It is much appreciated!”
