Food Bank gearing up for Christmas drive

Our 19th annual Christmas Concert and silent auction will be at the Wells Gray Hotel on Sunday, Dec. 9

Editor, The Times:

Clearwater and District Food Bank is conducting its annual Christmas Food Drive.  The citizens of the area have been great supporters of the Food Bank in the past and have contributed to the success that we have achieved.

As part of the seasonal drive we will be having our 19th annual Christmas Concert and silent auction at the Wells Gray Hotel on Sunday, Dec. 9. The doors will open at 6 p.m., the auction will start at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7 p.m.

Denis Chaykowski, who has sponsored this event annually along with local business, has lined up a number of local talents to entertain as well as bringing performing guests from Penticton.

A further note, Denis is starting plans for the 20th anniversary show in 2013. Anybody who has pictures from any of our previous Christmas concerts from 1993 – 2012 is asked to forward copies to the Food Bank.

Denis plans to format a DVD for the 20th anniversary show as part of the fundraising efforts for the Clearwater Food Bank 2013.

We ask for the continued support of our generous citizens and thank all who make this event a continuing success.
