Flight Night

Parkland Youth Home will benefit from the proceeds raised at this year’s Flight Night dine and dance.

The Sylvan Lake and District Lions Club hosts the annual event, which will be held at the Community Centre on Feb. 12.

Tickets are $100 per couple or $360 per table of four couples. Every couple will receive a gift and the event will have a Mexican theme this year.

For tickets, call 403-887-3776 or 403-887-5865.

Crafting class for charity

A Blackfalds-area design studio is planning a crafting class for charity on Saturday, Jan. 29. Mask-making on canvas will be taught from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Black Sheep Design Studio. The cost is $65 for a short canvas or $70 for a longer one; $30 from each student’s fees will be sent to the Khulakahle Day Care Centre in South Africa. The studio’s owners recently donated $1,600 to build a fence at the centre and are now raising additional funds to support the kids there (the owner does not turn children away, even though all parents do not pay her). For more information, call Brenda Topley at 403-885-0476.
