Nevados helps Fernie Falcons spread their wings

Nevados Restaurant donated part of the proceeds from their dinner sales to the Fernie Falcons senior boys’ basketball team.

Nevados Restaurant stepped up on Wednesday, April 8 by donating part of the proceeds from their dinner sales to the Fernie Falcons senior boys’ basketball team.

The night ultimately raised $350 that will help to pay off the team’s costs leftover from attending this year’s provincial championship.

“It’s pretty expensive to send 14 kids out and put them in a hotel for four days so we’re basically trying to help them pay off some debts,” explained Nevados co-owner Kurt Saari. “It’s great to get community members out and get them involved with a local team,” he added.

In addition to representing Fernie at the B.C. Provincials, the Falcons also won their division in the Kootenay championships.
