Local Women's Institutes co-hosting anti-Site C fundraiser

This week, they are teaming up with the Peace Valley Environment Association to host a fundraiser to stop B.C. Hydro's proposed Site C dam. The event will be held on February 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Burgers and Brews in the Econo Lodge, with proceeds going towards paying for consultants to analyze the Site C Environmental Impact Statement.

Funds will be raised through ticket prices and auctions for local artwork, baskets and products from the Peace Region. Tickets cost $20, and include a burger, fries and a drink, as well as a ticket for door prizes.
