WAWOTA - The Wawota Public Library had their second trivia event at the Wawota Hotel with special guest Owen Garrett, who gained fame for competing in Canada’s Greatest Know it All show almost 10 years ago.
Garrett, now a successful artist, donated not only his time to present the trivia night but also donated three of his works of art to the library silent auction.
The night was tense as the scores were very close but it was Levi’s Crew, consisting of Levi Peterson, Kristen Murray, Sean Murray and Kendra Murray, who took the coveted trophy right at the very final leg of the game.
Event organizer Sarah Weatherald, who is the chairperson of the Wawota Library Board, thanked all the teams who got involved and all the businesses who donated the great auction items.
A silent auction took place over the course of the week with donations coming from a variety of businesses in the area.
The event raised just over $1,500, with all proceeds going towards the Library Improvement Fund. The library is seeking to expand their floor space to bring it up to the standard of all libraries in the southeast region.
Planned funds will come from a variety of avenues including corporate donations, fundraisers and grants. For more information you can go to the Wawota Library Improvement fundraiser Facebook page or call Sarah Weatherald at 306-575-9789.
