The Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen reported  the Lower Similkameen Fundraising Dinner to be a roaring success last Saturday, May 3, raising more than $2,000 for the local Community Fund.

The Lower Similkameen Community Committee held its first fundraising dinner at the Branding Iron Bar and Grill, with all funds raised going to support the Lower Similkameen Community Fund.

The night included entertainment by Destin Lydiatt, the Cawston Players and Ian Hutton, along with great food prepared by the Branding Iron Restaurant team of Suzanne Siemens and Chef Karl Schorb and a silent auction which made the event a success.

“It is the support of those local businesses who donated items for our silent auction that made this night a huge success,” said Sarah Trudeau, Regional Development Coordinator, Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen. “All of the money raised from this event goes directly into the Lower Similkameen Community Fund- which supports local projects and programs in the area,” added Trudeau.
