Funds raised, laughs had at Kent carnival fundraiser

Parents of Kent Elementary school students and community members enjoyed burgers and beer at Jimmy’s Pub during a fundraiser Saturday, in support of Kent Elementary’s upcoming community carnival.

The night, which included performances by Todd Richard and the TR Trio as well as a 50/50 draw and raffle, raised $1237, which will help provide free admission to the carnival on June 9 for Agassiz and Harrison community members.

“The event was a huge success,” said Agassiz resident and Kent Elementary PAC vice chair Michelle Mailhot. “We packed the place and Todd kept the party going.”

The vice chair also thanked sponsors for help in keeping the fundraiser fun, such as Modern Tire & Towing, Rimex, The Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa, Mayor Leo Facio and Agassiz Library. She also thanked Jimmy’s Pub and Todd Richard and the TR Trio “for an incredible night of entertainment.”

Now, Mailhot and other PAC members are looking for volunteers for next month’s carnival. For more information, email Mailhot at m_mailhot@shaw.ca.
