Thanks to you, this year's 31st Annual Sunset BBQ was a massive success.
Your generous support raised over $140,000 for environmental education for young people in Manitoba. We are blown away by our community and are excited to put your support to work as we welcome thousands of students who wouldn't otherwise be able to come to FortWhyte Alive over this next year.
This night wouldn't be possible without our team of FortWhyte Alive volunteers and Diversity Foods Services, and we thank them for their efforts in creating an unforgettable evening for all in attendance.
We're grateful for Nicole Dubé from CTV Morning Live who acted as our evening's emcee and kicked things off with a Q&A session with Class Act recipient teacher Carla King of Acadia Middle School. If you missed your chance to sponsor a class last week you can still do so online.
Special thanks to our Sunset Sponsors Maple Leaf Construction and PCL Construction for leading the charge. Special thanks as well for our auction sponsors ADESA Auctions – with a shout out to auctioneer Rachel Atherton who raised a record $25,000 from the live auction alone.
You can't have rainbows without the rain, and this year we took that to heart. On behalf of our Board, organizing committee, staff and volunteers, we would like to say thank you to the many guests, donors, volunteers and individuals who support this event!
