Duelling for a good cause: Ponoka Soccer once again hosted its annual duelling pianos fundraiser Oct. 21 with Cam Hinton and Mark Ferguson providing the entertainment for attendees. The sold out fundraiser will help enhance the programming hosted by Ponoka Soccer. This fundraiser aims to offset the costs so young athletes can keep playing the game. The association is well-respected among the other soccer associations in central Alberta and the goal is to continue that legacy. It wasn’t known how much money was raised at press time.
