Slave Lake steps up for B.C. wildfire victims

Grilling for B.C.

Rotarians Srini Jayaraman, Justine Ricard and Tracey Crain work the grill at the Rotary Club’s fundraiser on July 21 for B.C. fire victims. A second foodie-fundraiser was held the next day for the same cause.

Local Rotartians were back at it and serving brunch on July 22 for B.C. fire victims. We are told Rotary raised $3,800 just from donations and then another $800 from raffle tickets for a picnic table. All proceeds will be going to wildfire relief efforts. The Leader hears rotary members served over 200 plates of food over the course of the two-day fundraiser.

Hats off to (l. to r.) Wayne Ghostkeeper, Barb Courtorielle, Sharon Watchel and Ali Mouallem who organized a ‘Fill the Trailer’ event and sent it to Prince George, B.C.
Mouallem says community members donated a variety of items needed by the 20,000-odd evacuees in Prince George. Aside from filling a trailer, Watchel raised around $1,500 in giftcards for wildfire vicitims.

Posters signed with positive messages were also sent to Prince George with the trailer and other donations.
