GREAT SHOW: The 3rd Annual Southwest Showcase Trade Show took place in conjunction with the 2018 Canadian Cowboys Association (CCA) Finals Rodeo at the Innovation Credit Union iPlex, Oct. 18-20. Over 50 vendors participated in the trade show, which was located in the curling rink area. The vendors showed their community spirit by donating items for a charity auction on Oct. 19 that benefitted the SaskAbilities Swift Current branch. The auction raised $2,425 for Ability Bowl 2019, which will take place on April 20. The Ability Bowl is an important fundraiser for the organization and funds will support programs and services in the community. Ability Bowl 2019 will have a rodeo theme and will be called Rodeo Bowl.Pictured above: The 3rd Annual Southwest Showcase Trade Show provided free admission to a variety of vendors.
