The 8th annual Australia Day fundraiser put on by Riversdale Resources in quickly approaching.

This year, the fundraiser will take place on January 25th.

Senior Manager of Public Relations for Riversdale, Claire Rogers, says this is a great way to give back to the community of the Crowsnest Pass while celebrating the company’s Australian roots.

Rogers says the idea for the fundraiser came from an original team member.

“The idea came from one of Riversdale’s original team members, Peter Murray. When Riversdale first came to town, Peter started Australia Day to introduce the company and our Australian culture and, to raise money for the community.”

The event kicks off at MDM Community Centre with a cocktail hour starting at 6pm followed by dinner, an auction and dance.

This year, Derina Harvey Band, a Celtic rock group from Edmonton, Alberta will be providing live entertainment.

Rogers says the fundraiser has been able to touch many people and groups over the years.

“We’ve fundraised for six different groups in the past. Last year we raised over $29,000 for the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation to aid in the purchase of some much-needed equipment for the hospital.”

Rogers also says it’s something Riversdale is very proud of.

“We are very proud of how Australia Day has grown since its inception seven years ago. The event was a great introduction to the company and culture when it started and it’s allowed us to continue to maintain a close connection to the community and collectively bring tremendous benefit to the beneficiaries each year.”

Rogers and Riversdale are also aware that putting this on every year wouldn’t be possible without the help of the community.

“This event wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of local businesses, our staff and all the community members who continue to attend the event year after year. We hope you’ll join us again in 2020 to help raise money for the York Creek Residents Association.”

There are under 75 tickets left for the event and if anyone is interested in purchasing any, they can do so by stopping into the Riversdale office at 12331 20th Ave or by phoning 403-753-5160.
