DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Dawson Creek Secondary School will be hosting Olympian Jon Montgomery at Unchagah Hall on January 21 as part of a fundraising event for the DCSS athletics program.
This event will feature a live auction, with Montgomery being the auctioneer. Before he became known as on Olympian, he worked as an auctioneer.
All funds that will be raised from the event and the auction will be used to fund the DCSS Athletic program and costs of participating in tournaments.
At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Montgomery won his race beating out his closest opponent by 7/100th of a second to win the gold, and celebrated that win by marching through Whistler singing the national anthem.
He has since gone on to become the host of CTV’s Amazing Race Canada, and has been the host for the past three seasons and will continue on to host the show for a fourth year.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.tigerboxofficeplus.ca, by phone at 1-877-339-8499, and in person at the two Tiger Box Office Plus locations at the Encana Events Centre and at Tiger Printing & Stationers for $55.00, plus fees.
