Organizers of an upcoming community fundraiser in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada have come up with a unique theme for the event — that of “good old-fashioned fun.”

The backyard party fundraiser, to be held Saturday, Sept. 5 at 26 Westwood Cres. in Sylvan Lake, will see all proceeds from an onsite silent auction donated to the MS Society.

Flashback Freddy will perform his popular plethora of rock and roll hits, while a photo booth and face painting for children will provide further entertaining fun.

Festivities are expected to kick off at around 6:30 p.m.

“Every year, the party has provided a great way to gather, have fun and raise money for a hugely important cause, and I’m confident this year will be no exception,” said Treena Mielke, one of the event’s organizers. “We plan to transform our backyard into a miniature Hawaiian paradise — at least we plan to attempt to transform the yard into such a paradise — of course, there may be a very Alberta-like downpour, but we do have a huge tent ordered, so we will be dry anyway.”

To confirm attendance at the event, or to donate an item to the silent auction, contact Mielke at 403-887-3226 or 403-350-9453.
