UFA Co-operative Limited has announced a special appreciation concert to recognize the eight runners-up in the UFA Small Town Heroes contest. Paul Brandt will entertain the crowd at the Calnash Ag Event Centre in Ponoka Oct. 25.

In addition to the two exclusive concerts Brandt will play for the grand prize winners, this third concert will pay tribute to each of the eight runners-up of the UFA Small Town Heroes contest. One of those runners-up is Erin Steeves of Rimbey.

“We were so inspired by all our finalists that we wanted to do more to recognize them. This third concert is our way of saying thanks for everything you do to keep small towns alive in Alberta,” said Bob Nelson, president and CEO of UFA Co-operative Limited.

The two grand-prize winners, Mack Erno from Teepee Creek and Ed Boychuk from Smoky Lake, will each receive $10,000 and an exclusive concert by Paul Brandt in their hometown with proceeds supporting a community cause or initiative of their choice. Tickets for both the Teepee Creek and Smoky Lake concerts will be sold locally.

Tickets for the Ponoka concert are available to the public on TicketWeb.ca. Due to limited supply tickets are expected to sell out fast.
