A fundraiser is brewing in downtown Swift Current for this evening, supporting a local girl and an essential healthcare centre.
Re/Max Swift Current's 2nd Annual Pint and Burger Night starts serving plates at 5 p.m. at the Buffalo Brew Pub.
Broker and owner of the real estate agency, Lanette Thoreson, said this year they're not only raising funds for the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital, but also for Rustyn Paul's fight against cancer.
"We heard about Rustyn's health issues, and we just decided, it's a small community, it takes a community to raise a family," she said. "So here we are, we're wanting to support them and help them offset some of their costs."
Donating to the Children's Hospital in Saskatoon isn't anything new for this agency.
Thorsen explained that every time there's a sign on a lawn that labels a house as a 'Miracle House,' it means that a portion of the agent's commission from the sale goes to the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital.
"We're hoping to make this year our biggest donation yet," added Thoreson.
Tickets cost $35 for the meal, which consists of a burger, a pint or a pop, and a side. Proceeds from those tickets, which can be bought at the door or through a Re/Max agent, go to the hospital.
A 50/50 is also being drawn this evening, with half going to one lucky ticket buyer and the other half making its way to the Paul family as little Rustyn continues her battle bravely, and headstrong.
Anyone who has purchased the dinner will also be entered to win Full Line Ag Fun Bucks for the upcoming Million Dollar Auction.
