The latest project for the Ponoka Kinettes is still under wraps but that hasn’t stopped the group from raising money for it.
Their most recent fundraising event brought musician Jamie Woodfin and his band to the Kinsmen Community Centre Feb. 22 for a night of music and entertainment. Co-president Christina York said the full amount raised was not yet available but approximately 120 people attended the event.
Folks also had the pleasant task of learning how to line dance. Cynthia McIntyre from Red Deer walked people through the finer steps. They were treated to a few different dances while McIntyre guided them along each dance.
York said the group is looking at improving different playgrounds and the possibility of working with Ponoka Parent Link. She expects a decision in the near future.
“The biggest thing is that it’s going to go back into the community. That’s our agenda as Kinettes,” said York.
Co-president Kim Flaman said despite not having a full house, those who did come stayed for the entire night. “I think the best part was that everybody had a lot of fun.”
Attendees appeared to get into the spirit of the night and the winner of the 50/50 raffle donated $100 back to the Kinettes, added Flaman.
She was grateful to the community for coming out and supporting their endeavour.
