Putting the Fun in Fundraising
By Jackie Harms
La Broquerie was alive with activity this past weekend, from hockey and basketball tournaments, kids crafts, wagon rides and face painting, to a barbecue and social. It was La Broquerie livestock and pork producer, HyLife’s annual two-day community fundraising event, better know as “HyLife Family Fun Days”.
HyLife Event Chair, Charlene Ramkissoon says their two-day event continues to grow every year, and this year they want to raise at least $100,000. “We are trying to raise money for three significant charities; Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Canadian CMV Foundation and Backstage Teen Drop-In Centre in Steinbach.”
She adds both adults and children have lots of fun, which is great, but it’s all for an important goal. And that is to fundraise for charity.
Ramkissoon says this annual event continues to be a great way to bring the community together for a great cause. “What makes this event so special is that HyLife gets the opportunity to further strengthen our partnerships with the community.”
