Support Winfield seniors at silent auction Apr. 29

Interested in helping out seniors living at Winfield’s West Pine Lodge, and having a lot of fun doing it?

Interested in helping out seniors living at Winfield’s West Pine Lodge, and having a lot of fun doing it? Then plan to attend the lodge’s first ever fundraising silent auction Apr. 29.

Lodge manager Wendy Filewich noted the lodge is holding the inaugural silent auction to raise funds to help cover the cost of entertainment for the lodge residents. Filewich said the lodge currently relies almost completely on volunteer entertainers.

In the past the lodge has enjoyed wagon rides, musicians, Patches and the Littles and much more but having some funds to cover professional entertainers would help the lodge and benefit the residents.

Filewich said entertainment is very important to the lodge residents, as they’re not able to go out to see entertainment and rely on others to bring it in.

She said the silent auction will be a traditional one, where items are displayed with bid sheets and at the end of the evening, the highest bidder on the sheet wins the item.

Also, Filewich noted guitarist and singer Lisa Leschert will perform. “She’s awesome,” said Filewich by phone Apr. 13, who noted that Leschert herself is a lodge manager in Eckville. Snacks and refreshments will also be offered at the event.

Filewich said the lodge is gratefully accepting donations for the silent auction, and any donation will be accepted. Filewich asked that donations be in by Apr. 25 so organizers have time to prepare the event. She also noted donors will be publically recognized for their contribution to the lodge.

The silent auction event begins Apr. 29 at 6 p.m. at the West Pine Lodge in Winfield. Those interested in donating should contact Filewich at 780-682-3960.
