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.
