The Fernie Nordic Society fundraiser was held this past weekend with guest speaker Beckie Scott. Approximately 80 people were in attendance for Beckie’s inspirational speech, Dare to Dream, about her road to becoming an Olympic medalist.
In addition to a basket of local items donated for Beckie (such as Robertson Estate vinegar, Home spun soap and Carosella fudge) artist Kerri Holmes presented one of her honey pots and honey from Elk Valley Apiaries.
There were over 40 items in the silent auction, a brown bag draw and door prizes all donated by local businesses including an original painting by Angela Morgan.
Locals had a chance to speak with Beckie after her speech and have their photo taken, get autographs and hold her gold and silver medals.
The winner of a two night, two for one airfare to Vegas from Fernie Chrysler was Kerri Holmes.
