Westerner Days Fair & Exposition for 2017 may be over, but the impact on our community is lasting. Seventeen official off-site events were held this year with over $23,000 raised, benefiting local not-for-profits and many events also collected Food Bank donations.
From pancake breakfasts to barbeques and chili cook-offs, food was a common theme during our community gatherings. A total of ten pancake breakfasts were held that raised a combined total of $9,800 and five barbeques raised $5,290. BIG 105 and 106.7 The Drive Chili Cook-Off event, benefitting the Kidney Foundation, brought in $2,729.90.
Westerner Days’ Morning of Faith, presented by 90.5 Shine FM, on Sunday, July 23, had over 2,600 people in attendance. The non- denominational service was free to attend, and guests were encouraged to bring a donation for the Red Deer Food Bank. A staggering 530 lbs of food was collected and $862.55 in monetary donations.
Westerner Park would like to thank everyone who planned or participated in a Westerner Days off-site event. Our community united together in celebration and support, which is what being a Westerner is all about!
