Elks raise money for charity.

Elks firewood fundraiser for charity

Elks raise money from firewood for charity event.

Bernie Pulsifer, Bruce Nelson, Simon Piney, Fred Gietz, and Simon Bernard gathered together as Gietz, Elks President, presented Piney, Fernie SAR Search Manager with a donation cheque from the firewood-for-charity event. Last year the Elks were able to raise over five thousand dollars for charities across Fernie, after prepping and selling the logs that had been donated by Jemi Fibre. This year, the prospects looked even better, with Jemi Fibre once again donating an estimated 35 pickup truck-loads of wood.  Ever since this partnership between the Elks and Jemi Fibre began, this firewood-for-charity has become tradition. Gietz hopes to continue this practice throughout the years, in order to continue giving back to both community organizations and international children’s charities.
