Gearing up for ‘Diamonds & Denim’

Plans are taking shape for the fourth annual Diamonds & Denim fundraiser for the Canadian Paraplegic Association (CPA).

The event is slated to run Feb. 19 at the Red Deer Lodge, with proceeds supporting the Central Alberta office of the CPA.

The local office has been serving clients since 1988, helping people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities to “achieve independence, self-reliance and full community participation.”

The CPA also aims to help people rebuild their lives after an injury and to help communities break down barriers to “accepting those with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities.”

This year’s gala features live entertainment with Danny Hooper and The Honky Tonk Heroes, door prize draws, a live auction, a silent auction featuring jewellery from Mitchell & Jewell and a raffle for diamond pendant donated by Mitchell & Jewell.

For sponsorship information or to purchase tickets, call 403-341-5060 or 780-424-6312. Tickets are $125 each, and there is an early bird special until Dec. 31 with tickets available for $100 a piece.
