CMB Fundraiser Event
WHAT A NIGHT!!!Updated Tuesday December 11, 2018 by Carman Minor Ball.
Carman Minor Ball and Carman Minor Hockey teamed up for the Odds & Ends Christmas Event and hosted 350 guests at the Carman Community Hall on Saturday December 8th. The evening was a huge success with net proceeds just over $13,000!!!
CMB announced that their portion of the proceeds will be going towards the Ball Diamond Building Project. Rendered drawings were available at the event for everyone to see what we have been working on with the engineers. The fundraising campaign will launch in Jan 2019 - more info to come on that.
CMH announced that their portion of the proceeds will be going towards new benches for the b-side viewing area. This will be a great addition to the arena for those that want a more comfortable area to sit. Padded cushions and back rests - something that has been desired by hockey fans for a while.
Both sports organizations would like to thank the many volunteers who made this night a success and to the businesses who donated and helped sponsor the event. A huge thanks to the Odds & Ends for giving us the opportunity to host this event on their behalf and receive the proceeds.
Home Hardware - donated cups for the bar
Carman Legion Branch #18 - donating the ice
Ron & Kathie Atkins - caterer
Carman Florists - donation of center piece rental costs
Nathan Strange - Master of Ceremonies and keeping the evening flowing seamlessly
Curtis Hiebert - Blessing the Meal
And.... Big Daddy Tazz for bringing along John Ljungberg!
What a great night! Stay tuned for more info on the Ball Diamond Project and watch the Valley Leader for our fundraising launch article.
