Porcupine Credit Union: Small Town Charity Auction Raises Big Dollars

PORCUPINE PLAIN, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - Sept. 3, 2013) - For the second year in a row the Porcupine Credit Union, Parkland Co-op and Porcupine Plain RCMP detachment have joined forces in raising over $20,000 for local community organizations in and around the small town community of Porcupine Plain. The three organizations have been raising money for local groups for over 14 years.

This year's charity auction proved to be just as successful as last year with another $20,000 raised. Cory Leichert, General Manager of Parkland Co-op who is on the organizing committee says, "It is an excellent feeling to know how much support there is for this event and for the community, a huge thanks to all sponsors, members of the organizing committee, staff and organizations who were involved to make this event an incredible success. Parkland Co-op is very proud to be associated with this fund raiser. A job well done."

The charity event consists of a steak and lobster supper followed by an evening of both live and silent auctions. Auction items are donated by local, provincial and national businesses and organizations. Local groups are asked to submit requests for funding and the money raised is divided up between them. David DeVos, General Manager of Porcupine Credit Union is impressed with the outcome, "Porcupine Credit Union is very pleased with our partnership with the Porcupine RCMP and Parkland Co-op; as well as the success that our Steak and Lobster event has had. We are very proud of this community event and feel honored that we can contribute to the communities by giving back and being a community builder."

Robert Anderson, Corporal of Porcupine Plain's RCMP detachment is also happy with their involvement, "It's incredible to see so much support from the community, a thank you needs to go out to everyone who attended and had a hand in making this event possible. The Porcupine Plain RCMP detachment is privileged to be a part of this fundraising event." The third annual Steak & Lobster Supper & Charity Auction is already booked for 2014. The planning committee is optimistic that the community will come together to anchor another successful fundraiser that will benefit all residents in Porcupine Plain and surrounding area.
