The fourth annual Chairs for Charity has officially wrapped up in Lacombe. The fundraiser organized by Nowco Home Hardware was started as an initiative to decorate the City for Lacombe Days.
Lacombe residents had the opportunity to purchase tickets for 48 chairs decorated by local businesses between July 11thand 21st. Each ticket was sold for $5 each in support of the Lacombe and District Family and Community Support Services Fill a Fridge Program. The Fill a Fridge program allows families to purchase groceries of their own choosing during the holiday and spring season.
This year, a record-breaking number of tickets were sold and $8,755 was fundraised for the program. Since the program began, it has fundraised $23,400 for local charities.
The chairs with the most raffle entries were from the Dutchess Flower Co. and Len Thompson Lures.
