The Weyburn Youth Centre's annual banquet and fundraiser is just around the corner, set to take place during the first week of October. This year marks a significant milestone as the Centre proudly celebrates 31 years of dedicated service to the community.

Since its inception, the Youth Centre has grown and now offers a variety of games and activities exposing young people to a wide array of experiences. 

Dedicated volunteer, Susan Adderley gives more details on what youth can look forward to on Friday evenings. 

“We've got a great variety of things for you to do. Come play basketball, skate in the park, play a game of pool, play a game of ping pong. We've got Xbox, we've got an Atari video game. We got everything there, board games if that's your thing too.” 

For the Youth Centre to continue to offer its community service, the volunteers for the organization arrange an annual fundraiser which includes a banquet and a silent and live auction. 

Susan emphasizes the significance of community support by saying, “I want to mention that we are celebrating 31 years for the youth centre. That is so awesome, and we couldn't stay open without the generous support of our community. We're looking for donations for both our silent and our live auctions.” 

All proceeds raised from the banquet fundraiser go directly to supporting the Centre. 

If you'd like to make a contribution to the auction or secure a ticket for the roast beef supper, please reach out to Susan Adderley at (306) 861-2002 or Cam Weber at (306) 861-3393.

The event will kick off at 5 pm on Saturday, October 7 at Knox Hall. Tickets are $30 each or a table of eight for $230.
