  • Mar. 22, 2011 6:00 a.m.

The Prairie Mountain Properties and Luxury Real Estate Investment Group are presenting a Penthouse Condo Launch and Silent Auction in the Village of Radium Hot Springs on Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

The events will repeat on April 2-3, though times are pending.

Sponsors will showcase a multitude of items available for bidding, with all the proceeds going to the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS).

In addition, up for bid is a new four bedroom, three bath, plus loft, executive penthouse condo located on Prospector Avenue.

It will be on display and open for bids, with partial proceeds from the sale going to STARS. STARS is a community-based, non-profit charitable organization, dedicated to providing a safe, rapid, highly specialized emergency medical transport system for the critically ill and injured.

A STARS VIP (Very Important Patient), Tanner Delfs, and his family will also be a part of this event, and to share their story.

On a long weekend in August 2009, Dwayne Delfs received a call from his wife informing him that their nine-year-old son, Tanner, had been in an ATV accident in a rugged area close to the District of Invermere.

Tanner was the passenger on the back of an ATV when the accident occurred, leaving him severely injured.

The STARS crew was able to locate Tanner and prepare him for transport to the Alberta Children’s Hospital, where Dwayne Delfs anxiously waited.

Upon arrival, Tanner was placed in intensive care where he would spend six days before he was stable enough to begin his recovery.

“I feel as though STARS gave Tanner a second chance. I truly believe that without STARS he wouldn’t have had that chance,” said  Dwayne Delfs.

Tanner, now 10 years old, is well on the way to a complete recovery and quite able to participate in normal activities.

“Community involvement and charitable contribution is an important part of our mission,” said event organizers Keith Uthe and Mike Hopp said in a official press release.

“We believe in making a difference.”
