Flin Flon’s Jump start program will be hosting a fundraising barbecue this Saturday at the Canadian Tire parking lot between 11-4. Tanya Benoit a local volunteer tells us why you should support this event.
“ For the local kids. Let’s give kids in this community a sporting chance, we had 280 kids last year that got their first chance to play sports for the first time or actually got a chance to play again because we have this program. So come out and support our youth in this community.
This barbecue has raised $16,000.00 the last couple of years and has also allowed more than 500 kids to play organized sports in our community. Hapnot will also be hosting a car wash with proceeds going to the Grad class of 2016. Jumpstart would like to thank all their sponsors for this event including: the CO-OP, Credit Union, FF Insurance and AJ’S Maintenance.
