Vote for the Red Deer Royals Fieldhouse in Aviva Community Fund Contest

Published

The competition will award $100 000 to the project garnering the most votes. The first round of voting ends October 28, 2016 and the top 15 projects will advance to the next round. Please show your support and vote today. https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/voting/project/view/16-343 The Fieldhouse is the only Aviva Fund project in Red Deer in the Community Health Category.

The fieldhouse will be part of St. Joseph’s High School and will be a recreational facility available to the community in the quickly growing area of North-East Red Deer.

The band is approaching its 50th anniversary but has never had a permanent home for rehearsals and performances. They have used schools, pavilions designed for agricultural/livestock shows, an empty strip mall and an airport hangar.

.A long-term agreement with Red Deer Catholic Schools will ensure that The Royals have appropriate rehearsal and performance space well into the future. This facility includes designs specifically to meet the needs of a large marching show band and will include acoustic equipment appropriate for the band.

The Alumni Association has been working diligently and have currently met 65% of its ,700,000 commitment to the field house; a facility that will benefit the entire community, as well as the youth of the Red Deer Royals Marching Show Band.

Lacombe’s “Chairs for Charity” exploding in popularity

Lacombe's chairs for charity

Thank you to NOWCO HOME HARDWARE IN LACOMBE for submitting this post

NOWCO HOME HARDWARE’S 2NDANNUAL CHAIRS FOR CHARITY

Nowco Home Hardware has organized Chairs for Charity for the 2ndyear and it will run from July 19-31. The project started last year as a collaboration of downtown businesses to decorate downtown during Lacombe Days and raise money for a local charity. In 2018, forty five downtown businesses each bought and painted a chair to raffle off. The chairs were left on display during the 4 days of Lacombe Days and over $3100 was raised for the lunch program at J.S. McCormick School.

This year Deanna Nowochin, who has spearheaded the event wanted things to be bigger and better, so all Lacombe businesses were invited to participate in the event. This year there will be 75 chairs on display around Lacombe from July 19-31. The event was extended this year to ensure there was ample time for people to hear about Chairs for Charity and purchase tickets. The charities benefitting from 2019’s project are Lacombe Minor Football and the breakfast program at Terrace Ridge School.

This year we have 2000 tickets available, with a fundraising goal of $10,000. Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each and can be purchased at any participating business. You can see a full list of participating businesses and photos of their chairs at www.chairsforcharitylacombe.comor by searching “Chairs for Charity Lacombe” on Facebook.
