The Kinette Club of Stettler will be hosting an adult-only Celtic Pub Night fundraiser on Saturday, April 6 at the Stettler Community Hall, with proceeds going towards needs in the community.

The Kinettes are holding this first-time event as an extra fundraiser to help accommodate an increase in requests for funding and assistance this year, according to Sara Wengryn, event chair.

“When smaller non-profit organizations are looking for support they often come to service organizations [such as the Kinettes],” said Wengryn.

The Kinettes will then “spread those funds” where they’re most needed, says Wengryn.

The evening will include Celtic music, beer sampling, 50/50 draws, snacks and a midnight lunch.

Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the band, St. James Gate out of Lacombe, will start playing at 9 p.m.

Wengryn says the band style is “really lively, really fun,” Celtic and Irish music with a bit of modern rock that’s good to dance to.

Troubled Monk Brewery from Red Deer has confirmed its support of the event.

Tickets are $40 per person and are available at Bond-O Communications in Stettler.

Tickets will also be available at the door.

There are a total of 300 tickets for this event and sales have been going well, says Wengryn.

“The event is definitely a ‘go.’”

The Kinettes decided to hold a Celtic pub night because an event like it hasn’t been held in Stettler for awhile, it’s a fun, laid back kind of fundraiser and craft beer is gaining in popularity, says Wengryn.

This event, as it does include alcohol, is for ages 18 and older.

The Stettler Kinettes have supported a variety of projects in past including funding library enhancements, the West Stettler Park playground and new soccer fields and other recreation department improvements as well as the Heartland Beautification Committee’s new community orchid that was started last year.

They have also supported the Heartland Youth Centre, the Stettler Health Services Foundation, the Stettler Regional Child Care Society and various children’s sports organizations and school scholarships.

The Kinnettes provide volunteer services for blood drives and other events.

The Stettler Kinettes currently have 18 members and have regular monthly meetings.

Kin Canada’s motto is “serving the community’s greatest need.”

“We don’t always know what that is until people ask,” said Wengryn.
