You could win while supporting Relay

You could win an ice fishing shack, with proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Due to the generosity of businesses like the College of the Rockies, RONA North Star Hardware and Home Renovation Centre, the Canadian Cancer Society’s Columbia Valley Relay for Life is getting an added boost this year.

The students from the trades’ program at the college, under the guidance of Cory and Joe from the Reno Centre, constructed two 5’x8’ ice fishing shacks, with materials donated by RONA.

The interiors of these shacks are complete with tiles to place your stove on, and of course a hole in the bottom. They can be easily dismantled in a matter of minutes, for easy moving and storage.

The exteriors have been painted and they are now ready for a new home.

The shacks are being raffled, with all proceeds going to the Relay for Life in our valley.

The plan is to do an early bird draw for one of the shacks at the Kick Off Party Thursday, April 14 at Copper Point Golf Course. The other one will be drawn at the Relay on Saturday, June 11.

The only obstacle right now, is that we still have not received the licence number for the raffle, so we cannot sell tickets yet.  If enough tickets are not sold in time, both shacks will be drawn at the Relay.

If ice fishing is not your thing, the shacks would also make a great storage container, or a playhouse for the kids.

Just buy a ticket or two and support the Columbia Valley Relay for Life.

And to keep you warm and cozy, I have made a 70”x80” quilt in brown, greens and rust and have donated it to the cause. The quilt is made with all flannel material and will fit a double or queen sized bed.

The draw for the quilt will be made at the Relay on June 11. Only 200 tickets are available, so make sure you purchase yours early, before they run out.

Raffle tickets for both of these items are available at RONA North Star Hardware, Invermere Home Hardware, College of the Rockies, The Book Bar, The Valley Echo, The Skookum Inn and Mountainside Markets, both in Radium and in Fairmont.

Tickets for both draws are $10 each or three for $25.

Please support the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life, and together we can beat cancer.
