Beef dinner to help four young athletes

  • Print

A local ladies’ organization is hoping to beef up its support of young athletes at an upcoming fundraiser.


The Ladies Auxiliary of the Norwood St. Boniface Legion (LANSBL) #43 will hold its annual Baron of Beef Fundraising Dinner at 134 Marion St. on Fri., May 24 from 6 to 8 p.m.


Tickets are $12 and include a dinner featuring beef, a baked potato, vegetables, coleslaw, a bun, dessert and coffee/tea. There will also be a perfume draw, a 50/50 draw, door prizes and a silent auction. Organizers are still seeking silent auction donations.


Every year, the ladies sponsor four young athletes to attend a weeklong stay at the Royal Canadian Legion Sports Camp at the International Peace Gardens.


Now in its 52nd year, the facility offers camps in numerous disciplines, including advanced track, basketball, elementary equestrian, gymnastics, judo, soccer, cross-country and volleyball. It is open to athletes aged 11 to 18 in Grades 4 to 12.


"This is our eighth annual dinner that we are holding to fundraise to help with the cost of the sponsorship," said Judi Vouriot, LANSBL’s president, in a news release.


"We encourage you to come out and enjoy this fun event and we thank you for all your help making this event a success in the past years."


The dinner will also feature guest speaker Jackie Hampshire, the camp’s first vice-president, who will talk about the history of the camp and the future goals of organizers.


For more information, call Vouriot at 204-475-9921. Tickets can also be picked up the branch at 134 Marion St.
