The southeast area came together in a big way over the weekend when Carnduff Minor Hockey decided to host a barbeque to raise money in support of the Humboldt Broncos.
"The parents all felt that we should get together," Ken Plews, coach for the Carnduff Midget hockey team, "and do a little fundraiser for the Humboldt through the co-op initiative there. there is was basically dreamed up by the team and kind of went from there."
"We had a couple raffle tables we had great support from Carnduff and all the surrounding communities they all chipped in quite a few things on our raffle table. Then the Co-op supplied us with all the burgers and hot dogs and buns and we just had to supply the manpower and we had a fantastic turnout form all the surrounding area"
Coaches and players participated in the setup, cooking and clean up.
"One of the players on the team has a car wash so we got it cleaned up and we held it right on the corner of Main Street."
"I believe it was little over $7800 and I just saw a message that there was a cheque being sent to the Co-op for $8000. It was way more successful than we dreamed it would be."
"It turned out to be a great day for it and the community supported it 100%. It was a really nice fundraiser."
