100 Mile House resident is rewarded with $1,000 payout for her support of the Big Country Shrine Club

Second 100 Miler drawn for $1,000 payout this year

The 100 Mile House Big Country Shrine Club gave a cheque to one of their biggest supporters on Dec. 12 as part of their cash calendar payout.

“Amanda [Usher] has been supporting our dinner auction every year since we started it, with the sound system and TVs; anything she could do,” said Frank Dobbs, vice-president of the Shriners. “She’s great.”

Usher said it would help her out at the club’s king crab dinner and auction that she will be going on to on March 30.

“I got a lovely chair last year,” she said.

President of the club, Glen Clancy, said they sold 5,000 calendars in the area.

“It’s really great the support 100 Mile gives us because very few people even say no to the calendars. They are all just buying them,” he said.

Everybody who purchases one of the cash calendars is eligible to receive a $25 payout except on weekends where they can get $100. Three people throughout all British Columbia can receive a $1,000 payout throughout the year. Each person is entered into a draw.

“We only have three of these prizes in all of B.C. of $1,000 and 100 Mile House [residents] have won two of them this year,” said Clancy.

Stephen Pellizzari was the other 100 Mile resident to win the prize (in February).
