Local cadets fundraising to go to 100th Vimy Ridge ceremony

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 2276 Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry Royal Canadian Army Cadet corps in Fort St. John is in need of support for their “Leave No Cadet Behind” campaign. It’s an extension of last year’s Harley Davidson draw and its goal is to send local cadets to the 100th Vimy Ridge ceremony in France in April of next year.

As part of the campaign 50/50 tickets are being sold with draws being held on May 1 and July 1 at 7 p.m. at the Legion. 50/50 tickets are being sold for five dollars each.

Tickets are also being sold for a draw where up for grabs will be a 700 Honda side by side, a $2,000 travel voucher, and a $500 pre paid Visa. Tickets for the raffle are $20 each, or three for $50. The draw will take place on July 1 at noon at Centennial Park.

Tickets are being sold at the Legion, the Hair Bin, Revolution Honda, the Fort St. John Trade Show, and at Save-on-Foods on most Friday nights as well as Saturday and Sunday.

Cadets will also be having their 17th annual steak and lobster dinner on May 7th. Tickets are $50 each and are on sale at the aforementioned locations. The dinner will be held at the legion with the doors opening at 5:30. There will be a silent auction, dinner, and a dance as part of the evening.
