The Martensville and District Kinette Club, like many other organizations, have been forced to get creative in their fundraising methods throughout the past year due to COVID-19. Earlier this year, the local Kinettes held a delivery/pick-up steak night fundraiser which saw great success by bringing in over $2200.
With this in mind, when Kinette Club President Jodi Martens thought the same kind of fundraiser could be beneficial to help raise money for local schools. “The idea came when Venture Heights was looking at a school fundraiser and they were going to do a movie in the park, which was cancelled due to COVID. We thought maybe we could give them a donation, but we aren’t a wealthy club by any means, so we decided to do a fundraiser. Our Club has many ladies with children in different schools, so we thought we would help them all out and if it is successful, then we may look at doing one for Warman next year as well,” Martens explained.
Money raised through the steak night fundraiser will be put into one pot and then split evenly between the four Martensville elementary schools; Venture Heights, Valley Manor, Lake Vista and École Holy Mary.
Order options are an adult steak meal with pasta salad, corn and garlic toast for $25.00 or a kids meal which includes a burger and a bag of chips for $15.00. Meals can be picked up at The Caesar Mill, or delivered anywhere in Martensville, Warman and Dalmeny.
In their previous delivery steak night fundraiser, 94 meals were sold, and this time around, the Kinettes have a goal in mind of 200 meals. Currently, they are sitting at 50, but orders will be accepted until June 9, with the meals ready for June 13 between 5-7pm.
“Thank you to everyone that has supported us, to the Kinsmen Club for helping us out and Tyler and everyone at The Caesar Mill,” Martens said.
