SCARS to hold fall gala fundraiser

The S.C.A.R.S Ministries is hoping to raise money for their new rehabilitation centre with a fall gala night.
S.C.A.R.S is currently the only alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre in Fort St. John and is in the process of building a new 50 person facility on a property near Airport Rd, says Jennifer Briemon, public relations co-ordinator for S.C.A.R.S Ministries.
Although the organization has received supplies donated by various companies around the area to go towards building the new centre, Briemon says the organization is trying to raise operating funds.
The gala will take place on Nov. 12 and 13 and will include a dinner and keynote speaker on the Friday and a speaker session on the Saturday.
Briemon says Pastor Rob McGrath is the keynote speaker. He is an ex-convict who now works with the homeless in Vancouver.
Tickets are currently on sale at the Christian Life Centre or by calling Jennifer at 250-785-1008 or 250-261-0820
