Bonnyville Jr A Pontiac players participated in “Tip a Pontiac” Thursday night to help us raise money for kids not able to afford to participate in sports. The players served restaurant goers at MR. MIKES Bonnyville and donated any tips they made during the evening to Kidsport. Manager for the MR MIKES Bonnyville, says “it was a terrific night!”

“As the Family Restaurant Partner of the Bonnyville Pontiacs, MR MIKES staff donated all tips towards charity and we are thrilled to announce that tips received will be donated to Kidsport,” explains Head Coach of the Pontiacs, Rick Swan. “The players ‘job shadowed’ the fine staff of MR MIKES for the evening and had an opportunity to get a great appreciation of what the hard working employees do each and every single day.”

MR MIKES staff was very welcoming of the young men, MR MIKES says the team worked hard for the tips they received. “The Pontiacs worked really hard and brought a great energy to the event. Our servers had a great time working with the Pontiacs and we are thrilled we were able to raise a lot of money for such a tremendous cause.”
