Some celebrity dancers who have hosted their fundraisers like Cindy Mandrusiak have more than $34,000 under their belt.
While other celebrities like Mellisa Hollingsworth and Carla MacLeod have fundraisers coming up. The duo are hosting a curling bonspeil on March 27 at Pidherney Centre in Red Deer.
John Young and Troy Gillard are also teaming up to host Almost Famous – a pub night fundraiser on March 23 at Bo’s Bar and Grill.
All the money raised will go to the celebration plaza, which will serve as a physical legacy left behind by the 2019 Canada Winter Games.
Located on 48 Avenue, the plaza will be used for inclusive play and cultural gatherings.
The space will be wheelchair accessible, have a play area for kids, and be open to the entire community.
