2017 Chair Extraordinaire a Great Success
SPRC and Hyer Oilfield welcomed 430 people, plus our volunteers, to the Jackpot Grill on October 14th for our 7th Annual Chair Extraordinaire. The evening was great fun, and this busy crowd raised just over $75,000 after expenses! These dollars are much needed to supplement funding for community programming over the next year.
A few highlights of the evening include:
- The $5500 diamond ring donated by Curry’s Jewellery raised $7,100 in raffle sales and was won by Charlotte Bierman. Charlotte works for the County of Grande Prairie, No. 1, and has been attending the Chair Extraordinaire for several years. Congratulations, Charlotte, and thank you so much, Curry’s Jewellery, for your continued support.
- The chair raising the most money this year was the Trip to Mexico, for $4000. This chair was purchased by Angie Peters and John Krol, who also sponsored the Champagne Reception. The chair was donated by Don Whiteford of DEW-Line Enterprises, WestJet and Just Beachy. John and Angie are going to have a wonderful time in Nuevo Vallarta!
- Entertainment was provided at no cost by A Group With No Name, local entertainers Rick Hryciuk, Kelly Hryciuk, Cassie Pollock, Jenn Robertson, Monty Haughian, Kenton Schultz, Candace Boechler, and their technician Derek Boechler. Thank you, for your wonderful and heartfelt support of SPRC and the Chair Extraordinaire.
We have barely had time to draw a breath, and already we are making plans for next year. Set your calendars for October 13th, 2018, for the next great Chair Extraordinaire!
