Annual Fundraising Dinner

On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, PAL (55+) held its fourth annual Fundraising Dinner at the Canad Inns Fort Garry with 140 people attending. The proceeds raised from this dinner will be added to the PAL (55+) Building Fund for a future home for our membership.

We were very pleased to welcome Nancy Gajdosik, PAL (55+) member, as our emcee, and Ray St. Germain as the evening’s entertainment, who delighted the guests with many old-time favourites.

A huge thank-you is extended to our dedicated Dinner Committee who met over the summer months to plan this event. They had a lot of fun and worked so well together as a team – brainstorming and putting ideas into action!

Many thanks also to the business community for supporting our 2016 Fundraising Dinner. We were able to put together 25 amazing gift baskets. We added to our fundraising with the Dufresne Raffle ($2,000 Gift Card) that will count towards the total amount raised from the Dinner and will go towards the PAL (55+) Building Fund.

Dufresne Raffle

Dufresne graciously donated a $2,000 GIFT CARD that was raffled off at the 2016 Fundraising Dinner. Many thanks go to Terry and Don Duguid for arranging this with Dufresne, and a huge thank you to Shaun Dufresne for his generous support of PAL (55+). Last year, Dufresne provided a lovely sofa and two-seater for our raffle.  The raffle was won by Kathleen McLennan.  Here she is with some of her lovely new Dufresne furniture,
