Selkirk A&W lending a hand to fight multiple sclerosis
BY ZACH SAMBORSKI email@example.com For the last two weeks in August, Selkirk A&W owner Graham MacFarlane, along with wife Jodie, has turned the business into a fundraising venture in support of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society of Canada. On Aug. 19, $1 from every drink sold went to the MS Society. To commemorate the day, Winnipeg rockabilly duo the Bowman Brothers performed in A&W parking lot. ?That went great,? MacFarlane said. ?We raised another $500 for MS through donations for a bear that we were raffling off, and we were also giving $1 for every drink we sold that day. It seemed like people were having a great time. I?m not sure how many people we had here, but there were people dancing in the parking lot.? This week, the A&W in Selkirk hosts another fundraiser, as the annual Cruisin? To End MS event returns Aug. 27, and all A&W restaurants across Canada will take party. On that day, A&W donates $1 from every Teen Burger to MS. More entertainment is also in the wings, as Elvis impersonator Daylin James will perform in the A&W parking lot. ?Everybody?s trying to do something. This is what we?ve been doing over the past few years,? MacFarlane noted. ?We?re kind of making it bigger and better every year.?
