Big St. Paddy’s Day fundraiser coming up in Ponoka

Calgary’s fun band, Curious George, once again headlining the show


PARCS (Ponoka, Arts, Recreation and Cultural Society) is very pleased to announce that it’s hosting the second annual St Paddy’s Day cabaret on Saturday, March 17th at the Stagecoach Saloon.

The goal of PARCS is to create funds for recreation projects in Ponoka. The newest of those plans is the proposed wellness centre that would expand the current arena and refurbish the entire building.

PARCS intends to bring those funds to help with grant applications or other areas that would see an increase of recreation facilities in Ponoka.

The St. Paddy’s Day cabaret is expected to be a fun experience so we hope to see you there.

Back by popular demand is Calgary’s favourite band, Curious George, which absolutely rocked the PARCS’ supporters at the Stagecoach Saloon last year, belting out an impressive set list of songs that kept supporters of all ages out of their seats and dancing late into the night.

This year promises to bring more of the same kind of fun and excitement as last year, and food services will be provided by the always popular Bob Ronnie Catering.

Tickets can be purchased individually, or in tables of eight from the PARCS board members who include Justin Kelly, Julie Feragen, Amanda Henderson-Kada, Nicola Hoag, Bruce Clarke, and Tim Rowland.

Or check out the society on its Facebook page at Ponoka, Arts, Recreation and Cultural Society.
