Flood victims in southern Alberta are the beneficiaries of a barbecue and pie auction this Thursday in Big Valley.

Wildrose Drumheller-Stettler Constituency Association hosts the event at Big Valley Jubilee Hall. MLA Rick Strankman and association members invite residents to the gathering, featuring a spit-roasted pig barbecue, beginning with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30.

Together with a homemade pie auction, proceeds will go to Southern Alberta Flood Relief.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith was among the thousands of High River residents affected by the flooding in late June that swept across Calgary and other parts of southern Alberta.

MLA Strankman helped to address flooding issues in Drumheller, the southern-most part of his riding.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $100 a plate and include a $75 tax credit.
