Angels Within Us hosted their 6th annual fundraising banquet and auction at the Pincher Creek Community Hall on Saturday, November 21, selling over 325 tickets. President Sherry Mackenzie addressed the crowd after the dinner to say, "I am very lucky. The Angels work well together, because of the people I work with. They are amazing people, I cannot say enough about them." She thanked the board members, their family and spouses for their support, as well as the people who had braved the winds to attend the event and those who donated during the evening and throughout the year.
This is the main fundraising drive for the foundation, who supports people within the community who are facing trouble and need a hand up. The Angels Within Us Foundation reviews situations where local people are facing stress, usually because of health related issues, and look for ways to help. This year the unofficial total for the fundraiser was an impressive $55,000.
