Time running out to buy Keremeos firefighter appreciation dinner tickets

A night of appreciation is being held for the Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department

There’s only a few days left to pick up tickets for the Firefighter Appreciation Dinner at Victory Hall on Nov. 17.

Tickets will be on sale until Nov. 13 at Pharmasave, Westland Insurance, Emmy’s Bake Shop, Cawston Store and Valley First. Preliminary food ordering numbers need to be in by end of day Friday, so event organizers are hoping the majority of those wanting to go will buy there tickets by then.

Tickets are $25 and include a harvest dinner, dance and chance to win in a variety of raffles and silent auction.

“It’s getting close to the big event and we need to have final numbers in place.

Tickets are selling really well and we’re hoping for a sold-out event to show our local firefighters how much we really appreciate all they do for us, during this last fire season and every day,” Tara Bowie, one of the event organizers said.

The night is sure to be a great evening and give people a chance to catch up with friends before winter sets in.

“We’ve got a great dinner planned, there’s a cash bar, there’s raffles to be won and there will be a band and DJ, so the event has it all. There’ll be toe-tapping and dancing, I’m sure, as the Organic Humans and DJ JD play great hits throughout the night,” she said.

The Organic Humans and DJ JD recently played the Cawston Hall Halloween Dance where more than 180 tickets were sold and the dance-floor was packed all night.

The night is being put on by volunteers from a variety of local service groups including the Keremeos Elks, Royal Purple, Keremeos-Cawston Sportsmen Association, Similkameen Country and individuals.

“It’s a real community event with a sole aim of showing our appreciation to our local heroes that are there for us day-in and day-out, missing time from their families to protect ours. It’s really heart warming to have so many people working on this and doing something for the people who really deserve our appreciation,” Bowie said.

Money raised through event is going to the Keremeos firefighter club and will be used for things like the bursary program and to fix up the antique fire truck.

Anyone wanting to donate a prize for the event or volunteer can email editor@keremeosreview.com.
