RCMP Ball raised $45K for Bonnyville Victim Services

Bonnyville Victim Services is receiving great support from the community after the Bonnyville RCMP Regimental Ball.

The Ball was held on Saturday at the Bonnyville & District Centennial Centre after a five year interval.

Over 430 guests were there including dignitaries, community members, and RCMP members both active and retired from across the province.

S/Sgt. Sarah Parke said the night was filled with comradery, esprit de corps and RCMP tradition.

With a live auction and fundraising, approximately $45,000 was raised for Bonnyville Victim Services.

“I’d like to thank everyone that came out to support our event either by attending, making a donation or both. The support from our community members was off the charts making the evening all the more special,” said Parke. “See you in another five years.”
