Bouncy houses, pony rides, a barbeque, and live music are on the agenda for the Family Fun Day being planned for this Saturday at Great Plains Ford from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

It's all to help top off the Isaiah Evans fundraiser for a custom medical van, which costs $100,000.

Shannon Seitz, who works with Isaiah as his educational assistant and with the Evans family for his care, said they're about three quarters of the way to their goal.

"We need about $25,000 to go. We're hoping to have this money fundraised by the end of October, which was our goal, and it's moving along. We took the summer off, and we're getting back into things to finish this up," she shared. "We wanted to thank everybody for all their donations to come see Isaiah."

"So we'll be having a barbeque throughout the day, we have some vendors booked, there will be bouncy houses there, pony rides, and we're also doing a bottle drive that day at Ford so if people are not able to attend the event and just want to pop by and drop off some bottles and cans, we'll have that set up behind Ford as well."

Musicians will be down from Regina to give a live performance. 

"His nurse [Jan Cibart] from Regina, is bringing down the performers from Regina. One is 'Cup O Joe' and they sing traditional music and the other one is Blarney and they do Irish and Scottish music. So that's pretty exciting for him to have."

Seitz said while the event is free to attend, they will be selling hamburgers and hot dogs, and the kids zone for bouncy houses is being offered by donation. 

"People who just want to stop by and say hi and check out some of the vendors we have that's great, and the bottle drive is there."

The bottle drive has been an ongoing fundraiser for Isaiah throughout the summer. Read more HERE.

"He is very excited to have the day to celebrate and have the community come meet him, he will be at the event throughout the day, mostly in the morning, but we'll make sure he's there to say hi to everyone," she noted.

The GoFundMe is still underway. Find more details HERE.
