Fundraiser for family affected by fire
A fundraising dinner will be held next week to help out a family of six whose home was destroyed by fire less than a week after their move to the Tournament Capital in September.
On Sept. 9, fire gutted the half-duplex being rented out by a family from Edmonton.
Both parents, their four children and the family dog made it out OK, but two cats and a bunny were killed.
The Fernie Road home was also uninsured, with the family having moved to Kamloops just five days before the blaze.
Friends are now rallying and organizing a fundraising dinner at Montana’s Cookhouse on Monday, Dec. 3.
Donations will be accepted at the restaurant between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. and raffle tickets will also be available.
