Celebrity fundraiser in Shau­navon will help KidS­port

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

Shau­navon’s KidS­port Pro­gram will be get­ting a boost thanks to a celebrity fundraiser fea­tur­ing a pair of for­mer Saskatchew­an Roughrid­ers.

The fundraiser on April 5 will fea­ture Rider Hall of Fame re­ceiver Don Nar­cisse and nine-year CFL vet­eran and 2007 Grey Cup cham­pion Luc Mullinder.

The idea of a Celebrity KidS­port Fundraiser was dreamed up by Over­time Restau­rant and Sports Lounge own­ers Me­gan Todd and Josh Lind­say along with Shau­navon’s Joel Sopp.

“When the idea of a Celebrity KidS­port Fundraiser came up with Me­gan, Josh, and I last fall, we im­me­di­ately thought of foot­ball,” said Sopp. “Our team, the Saskatchew­an Roughrid­ers, won the Grey Cup and Rider Pride was every­where in our great prov­ince. We thought this would be the per­fect way to gen­er­ate in­ter­est in Shau­navon’s KidS­port Pro­gram.”

The trio are firm be­liev­ers in the KidS­port phi­los­o­phy that ev­ery child de­serves the right to play sports. “It’s the main rea­son that Josh and I joined Joel to make this fundraiser pos­si­ble,” said Me­gan.
