Tickets are selling fast for a May 3 Community Dinner fundraiser in Keremeos.

The Branding Iron Restaurant and the team of Suzanne Siemens and Chef Karl Schorb will prepare a meal for 100 area dinner guests.

The May 3 dinner is the start of efforts to build knowledge and appreciation for the benefits of a home grown “community chest” that supports people and projects in the Lower Similkameen.

The Lower Similkameen Committee has already begun building its own fund .

Cash that remained with K Mountain Music Invitational Society will go to the local fund.  KMMIS hosted Music Under the “K” in Keremeos for 10 years.

Already, one individual donor has drawn a cheque for $5,000 to the fund.

The dinner is the first fundraiser for The Lower Similkameen Committee of The Community Foundation of South Okanagan Similkameen.

Destin Lydiatt. is on keyboard for the evening. His piano work features standards, original pieces and some engaging improvisation.

Tickets for the May 3 dinner are $25 and  available at Similkameen Agencies,the Grist Mill, the Branding Iron Restaurant  and Cawston Marketplace.
