They came, they feasted and they imbibed, and at the end of it all they raised more than $10,000 for the United Way of Northern BC.
Finning hosted a fundraiser event for the agency at Canadian Brewhouse on Friday, Nov. 30, and raised a grand total of $10,517 through ticket sales, 50/50 draws, and a silent auction.
Two 50/50 draws both exceeded $1,000, and a Bradly Smoker, CAT Mini Fridge, and CAT Generator were among the bigger silent auction prizes up for grabs.
Finning hosted the event as part of its annual campaign with the United Way of Northern BC.
The money raised will go back into community programming in Fort St. John funded by United Way of Northern BC.
