Game show fundraiser for Little Oasis Benefit Society raises over $1,500

The society hosted “Price is Jeopardy or No Deal of Future” at the Rossland Miners’ Hall.

The Little Oasis Benefit Society raised more than $1,500 with its game show fundraiser in January.

The society hosted “Price is Jeopardy or No Deal of Future” at the Rossland Miners’ Hall on Jan. 20 and tickets to the game show sold out quickly.

“It was amazing,” said Michelle Seminoff, one of the society’s directors. “We sold out and the doors opened at 7, the first game started at 7:30 and at 7:30 we had people standing on tables on each others’ shoulders. It was like ‘boom, off we go.’ It was a huge success.”

The dance that followed was not as successful.

“We didn’t sell one ticket for [just] the dance. A lot of the people came for the game show, but the rest of the dance and we ended up going until we closed down, but yeah, in the future we’ll probably just do a game show,” she said.

The Little Oasis Benefit Society raises money for families with kids who need assistance to access equine assisted programs in the community.

Seminoff says the money raised from the game show night could help three to 10 children, depending on the amount of assistance provided.

“We can help either three full kids or because a lot of time people come and they can pay part of the fee, we could help up to 10 kids,” she said.

Prizes for the event were donated by businesses from Rossland, Trail, Castlegar and Nelson and Seminoff wanted to thank everyone who supported the event.

She said the game show night could become an annual event.
