Overwaitea Foods and Alpine Lumber in Sparwood recently partnered to raise money for the Children’s Hospital. Alpine Lumber donated the deck and Overwaitea Foods sold tickets for a chance to win it. Together they raised over $1100 dollars. Lucky winner Candice Shipley was excited to hear she had won the deck. “I have never really won anything before,” says Shipley. “I was really happy  when I found out I had won the deck.”

Overwaitea and Alpine Lumber would like to thank the community for all of their support.
