Peavey Mart fundraiser on grill for this Saturday

A barbecue and hay rides are part of the fun planned for Saturday as Stettler Peavey Mart hosts a fundraiser for breast cancer research.

Sarah Bourdon volunteers in 2011 at the Stettler Peavey Mart fundraiser for breast-cancer research. This year’s Stettler barbecue is scheduled for Saturday.

A barbecue and hay rides are part of the fun planned for Saturday as Stettler Peavey Mart hosts a fundraiser for breast cancer research.

The gathering runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It’s part of the provincial Wild Pink Yonder fundraising campaign.

“Our goal is to raise $6,000 and have a good turnout of adults and kids,” said Stacy Westergreen, organizer of the Stettler event.

“Bring the family for the day, and have a good time while helping us raise money for breast-cancer research.”

Among the games and activities included in Saturday’s barbecue are face-painting, a Stettler Fire Department display, and cotton candy and Slushie treats.

A silent auction is also scheduled, and one of the items up for grabs is an Al Hamilton-signed Edmonton Oilers’ jersey. Hamilton’s connection with the Oilers goes back to their formative years in the World Hockey Association. He played with the Oilers in the WHA and later in the NHL.
