Puppets help SPCA

A student and her art teacher put together a puppet show to raise money for SPCA

Amanda Weiers and her puppets.

The Weird Nickname Art group put together a fundraiser puppet show for the SPCA on Sept. 21 as well as several other fundraising activities including 11 silent auction items; four raffle baskets; 50/50 draw; 22 door prizes and a small concession.

Although the attendance was small, the group had been busy selling raffle tickets prior to the event, so the event itself rasied $544.60 for the SPCA. A huge thank you to Larry Forman at the Elks Hall for all his help. We would like to thank all the sponsors for their generous donations. Winners of the raffle baskets: Guys Grab Bag – Karl Pfeifer Mom’s pamper package – Larry Forman Teen boy – Betty Sherstan Teen Girl – Kaitlyn Petrie

Thank you very much to all the volunteers who came out to help with setting up, cleaning up, concession, ticket sales, puppet show and much, much more. We really couldn’t have done it without all of you.

Thank You to everyone who bought tickets and came out to see the puppet show you helped  make this a great success.

Amanda Weiers and her art coach Ruza Cook took on the bulk of the work staging this event. Amanda was very excited to present the SPCA with the cheque on Sept. 23  when they reopened for the $544.60.  She felt really good that she could help out with this cause.
