The Chinook Fund’s Pandemic Dinner was a Success!

The twice-rescheduled Chinook Fund Dinner 2021 was finally held on March 3, 2022 at The Commons in Ramsay.  While we hosted fewer guests than past years, it was wonderful to reconnect with friends who were able to attend.

Bill Brooks was on hand on March 3 to document the event and we are thrilled to have the Chinook Fund annual fundraising dinner featured in his Calgary Herald article.

The evening featured Al Osten and Buddy Victor, our 2021 Chinook Fund Hero Award recipients, and Philip Murray Bandura, who auctioned off two pieces of glass artwork raising an additional $1,200.  Many laughs were had as Philip auctioned off “Shiny Sh!t”!

The evening concluded with our first after party, at sponsor Ol’ Beautiful Brewing Co.
