Legion Fundraiser

Posted on February 11, 2014 by Shaunavon Standard

The Shaunavon Legion has launched a new fundraising effort to help with renovations at its hall.

The Legion has acquired three original oil paintings by Dee Dean and will be selling raffle tickets on the art work. The paintings are being framed in old barn wood by Greg Donaldson. “All of the money raised will go to the roof fund,” said Legion member Brenda Waldron. “We desperately need to re-tin the roof.” Five hundred tickets are being sold at a price of $10 each. The draw will be made in September. Tickets can be purchased at Rexall or at Walter’s Home Furnishings. “We are very excited to not only have a roof fundraiser but to support and promote two local artists (Dean and Donaldson),” said Waldron. The paintings are currently on display in the window of Rexall Drugs. The Grand Coteau Heritage and Cultural Centre also offered some assistance to the fundraiser by purchasing some easels to display the paintings.
