Yesterday, dinner at the Buffalo Brew Pub in downtown Swift Current was more than a meal; it was a contribution.
When folks purchased a plate during their Perogie, Sausage, and Beer night in partnership with SaskAbilities, they were helping support a local event, the AbilityBowl.
Jenny Dyck, the community relations coordinator for SaskAbilities, and other organization members were helping get people their shares of the prairie staple menu options.
"All of the proceeds will go towards AbilityBowl this year," assured Dyck. "Which in turn will go towards Camp Easter Seal."
Camp Easter Seal is an inclusive camp with a history of 65 years in Saskatchewan. They enable SaskAbilities members to enjoy the summer and build lasting relationships and memories while enjoying the camp experience.
The fundraising event saw folks come in, pay $30 for a plate, and sit down to enjoy a delicious meal and a pint.
Dyck has been newly placed into her role with SaskAbilities and is already excited about AbilityBowl, which will be taking place at the tale end of April.
"This is like my second week, and from what I understand, we used to do a wing night to kickoff for AbilityBowl," said Dyck. "But with inflation and prices and everything, we decided that perogies and sausage would be best."
For anyone interested in joining a team for AbilityBowl, you are in luck. Teams still need members and are looking forwards to hearing from fun-loving individuals who want to come out in support of SaskAbilities members.
