The Salvation Army Food Bank accepted a cheque totalling $980 from Best Western Plus Fernie Mountain Lodge on Monday, December 22.
The money was raised at the lodge’s Christmas party and is an annual tradition for the business.
“We do this every year and it’s always great that we have the opportunity to give back to people at this time of year,” said General Manager Wojtek Hellwig. “There are people in need of this money so it’s the least we can do to give back,” he added.
Shari Callan, front office manager, said that funds raised by employees at the party through raffles and bar payments were matched by the lodge’s head office in Calgary.
