A sold-out All Aboard Dinner Theatre in support of Benalto Train Station was a resounding success, raising over $11,000.

The production of A Bench in the Sun by Say it Ain’t So Theatre drew a full house of 200 people to the train-themed event, Oct. 19. Guests came from all over Central Alberta.

The entire evening and dinner was organized by Gloria Murphy and ably supported by volunteers who invested many hours of cooking and coordinating.

Donors, sponsors and a silent auction greatly added to success of the event.

Benalto Elks provided the hall and complemented the evening by providing libations for the audience.

All funds go toward Benalto’s Centennial Station project which will see the former CPR building turned into a gathering place, a small museum and archives and a centre for recreational and cultural activities for young and old.

All aboard for Benalto Centennial ride!
