Ponoka Soccer fundraiser brings in $16,000

Sponsors and supporters came together for the fundraiser, which featured the popular duelling pianos

Ponoka Soccer’s third annual fundraiser not only proved entertaining, but raised $16,000 to boot.

Held at the Stagecoach Saloon recently, the event featured the fun entertainment of pianists Cam Hinton and Randi Boulton as duelling pianos.

The fun entertainment had folks on the dance floor and was able to earn a large amount of money, which will help pay for the irrigation system at the Lucas Heights soccer pitches. Ponoka Soccer is working with the Town of Ponoka on the project.

The irrigation system will ensure the fields are well watered, which will keep the grass alive and strong. In the long run, Ponoka Soccer hopes to raise money for the field house planned in Ponoka

One of the benefits of a field house would provide Ponoka Soccer a place for indoor soccer. Currently the players take in the indoor soccer program in Lacombe.
