Pat & Janelle's wedding social on Friday
Jan. 18, 2010
For those of us that live in Manitoba, the social is a way of life! We use this medium to raise money for important life events, most notably for weddings! For those of you outside of our great province, you may not have heard the term before. Essentially, we have a huge party with all the proceeds from tickets, liquor sales, and silent auction prizes going to the bride & groom to help defray the costs of their upcoming nuptials. This Friday, January 22, Pat and Janelle will be hosting one such event! We are very proud of these two. They met while working together at Aikens and the rest, as they say, is history! Many people from within the Aikens Community have stepped up to donate some fantastic social prizes. One of the grand prizes will be a fishing inspired package which Toyota and Aikens combined on. In it are multiple rods & reels, tackle boxes, lures, rod cases, accessories, and clothing included in the package. Another of the big prizes is the sports package, which features signed jerseys from the Chicago Blackhawks (Jonathan Toews), Manitoba Moose (team), Winnipeg Goldeyes (team), and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Milt Stegall). A special thanks to our connection in the NHL office (you know who you are!) who also sent in a 3/4 length parka worn exclusively by the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers during the "Winter Classic" played at Fenway Park on January 1st of this year. The social will be held at the Norwood CC. If you don't have your ticket and would like to attend, you'd better act fast! They are $10 each and they are almost all sold out of the 400+ tickets! You can email or call us for tickets.
