Over 200 people came out for a taste of borscht and to browse the vendor wares at the Horse Association of Central Kootenay’s fundraiser.

The event was held in the Crescent Valley Hall this past Saturday and according to the hosts, was a great success. Over $1,000 was raised from the sales of borscht, chili, hotdogs and raffle tickets.

All proceeds will be going towards hosting a Youth Horse Camp July 24 – 25.

Borscht cook and host of the event, Pam Malekow said, “We had great community support with Black Press, Safeway both Castlegar and Trail, McCarthy’s No Frills, Steve’s No Frills, Plaza Bakery, Backyard Creations, The Pastry Shop, Robson Community Hall, and Shawna Erback.”

 

Malekow was very pleased with all the work her volunteers put in.
