PSA Game Banquet & Fundraiser Volunteers Needed

Dear PSA Members,

Well it is once again that time of year…..Christmas and the New Year have passed and the Annual PSA Game Dinner and Fundraiser is a mere two months away. The impact of last year’s event has been felt right across the seasons of 2015, with the finances raised at our last Dinner being used to support many programs and initiatives including; the Shannon Lake Youth Fishing Program, the Fishing Forever Program for the disabled, the Private Shooting Facility, the Mission Creek Restoration Project and the 400 foot Fishing Forever Boardwalk proposed for the Heritage Park waterfront in Peachland.

I expect that 2016 will see the continuation of current initiatives as well as opportunities to invest in other conservation and community projects. As we all know, these worthwhile endeavors don’t happen on their own but require the efforts of our dedicated volunteers and the continued support of our many sponsors. It is my hope, that as in years past, members will come forward to volunteer their time and resources to assist with the planning and preparation of the Fundraiser and that our patrons will yet again consider our cause worthy of their support.

The Banquet Committee is already hard at work but we are in immediate need of volunteers to step forward to manage a few areas:

  1. Decoration and Set-Up Manager We need a volunteer to look after all of the Hall and table decorations as well as manage the set-up and tear down
  2. Decoration and Set-Up Helpers We need at least six people to join the decoration and set-up team
  3. Meat Donation Manager We need a volunteer who is able to look after managing all aspects of meat donations including solicitation and collection, of meat and communications with the Catering team
  4. Meat Donations Without meat it’s pretty hard to have a Game Dinner! We need everyone who has fish and game in the freezer to dig deep and give back some of the bounty they have been blessed with – Until such time as Meat Donation Manager makes an appearance please call me directly at 250-767-6690 or send me an email at to let me know what you have to donate. We typically are looking for about 350 pounds in total
  5. Door Manager We need someone willing to manage the doors to the event, collect tickets, and work with Security to ensure the front face of the event runs smoothly. This person will be required to recruit at least one other person to assist them.
  6. Ticket Sellers For the selling of drink tickets, strip tickets, horn pulls, loonie toss and various raffles we anticipate needing at least ten volunteers
  7. Prizes and Donations PSA member Ann Carter has volunteered to manage the prizes and donations this year. A huge thank you to Ann!!!!! If you were the contact person for a prize or donation over the past couple years, Ann will be in touch with you to see if you can bring that support back to the event this year. If you have not been involved in solicitation of prizes and donations but are willing to make a donation or know of another person or business that might, please give Ann a call or send her an email. Her number is 250-768-5009. Email is


In addition, we require volunteers for bussing tables, clean-up, serving food, distributing prizes and scrutinizing during the live auction.

We do not have a definitive day when tickets will go on sale but I anticipate they will become available shortly. On that note, people who are spending the majority of the evening acting in a volunteer capacity will not be required to pay for their ticket.

So please consider being a volunteer, dig deep for meat in the freezer and open your wallet to sponsor a prize!

Look forward to seeing you at the Dinner.
