Kate’s Bestie’s Wedding raises over $6,900

The funny fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel is being hailed as a great success

The recent mock wedding dinner theatre Kate’s Bestie’s Wedding raised more than $6,900 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel (BBBSQ).

The wedding took place Nov. 9 at St. John Anglican Church and The Billy Barker Casino Hotel and Banquet Room and featured local actors and artists.

During this interactive comedy experience, which follows Kate’s Big Wedding last year, Tiffany (Heidi Preston) and Brad (Matt McGregor) were married by Father Fred (Fred Pulles). Everyone who bought a ticket for the fundraiser was a guest at the wedding, and after the ceremony inside the church, they ate and danced during the reception at the Billy Barker Casino Hotel.

BBBSQ thanks all the participants who made this event “a huge success.”

Last year, BBBSQ introduced Kate’s Big Wedding as a new fundraising event, and it raised $2,575.
