Prevost Partners With Battlefords Humane Society To Raise Funds
When he comes to perform at the Dekker Centre for the Performing Arts next month, country singer Codie Prevost will be helping to raise funds for a new animal shelter building.
Heather Hall, Battlefords Humane Society board member, says the Saskatchewan-born music star was impressed with the current Mob Dog campaign and has agreed to do a VIP package as a fundraiser for the society. It will be auctioned off online at the link at the bottom of this post.
The VIP package will include four premium seats for the Sept. 19 performance, supplied by the Dekker Centre, dinner with Prevost at Blend and limousine service by All Out Limousines.
The successful bidders will not only share a meal with Prevost, they will also be treated to a private acoustic performance of one song, a copy of his latest album and a photo opportunity. They will also accompany Prevost on a tour of the animal shelter.
Hall is thrilled Prevost, four time Canadian Country Music Association nominee and six time Saskatchewan Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year winner, has agreed to take part in the Humane Society’s fundraising efforts.
The 2014 Western Canadian Music Award for Country Recording of the Year is also taking part in a fundraiser this month when he takes the stage with Garth Brooks in Saskatoon raising money for Saskatchewan’s Children’s Hospital.
He’ll be doing another one in September at Anglin Lake.
The Battlefords Humane Society’s Shelter-Us Building Fund is aiming toward a new building within the next five years – the sooner the better, considering the condition of the current building. The fund so far contains about $350,000, but the new building will probably cost $1.5 million.
For the month of August, the Humane Society is running its “Who let the dogs out?” fundraiser to boost the building fund.
“If someone gives a $50 donation, then the group of dogs, which we’re calling the ‘mob dogs,’ would be put on someone’s lawn of their choosing,” says Hall, who built the wooden dogs herself, based on the idea of the flamingos-on-the lawn prank.
Insurance against not getting “mobbed” is also available at the same cost of a $50 donation to the shelter.
There are also prizes to be won, if anyone sees a mob of dogs on someone’s lawn, they can text their name and address to 490-WOOF (490-9663) to have their name entered into a draw to be held Aug. 31.
Those looking to prank their friends and family can call the Battlefords Humane Society at 306-446-2700.
