The 10th annual Revy Stomp, the Selkirk Saddle Club’s (SSC) largest fundraiser, took place at the Revelstoke Community Centre Saturday night.
The Stomp quickly became a January favourite and this year was no exception with tickets selling out weeks ago. Two hundred and thirty three people attended the event, which includes a bar, dance floor, beef dips, silent auction, great decor and all country music all night long.
The event is run by the SSC membership, with dozens of club members either setting up, bartending, taking tickets, cooking food, maintaining the auction and then cleaning up. Other members spent hours of work in the months prior to the Stomp, collecting silent auction items and ironing out the details.
The SSC Board of Directors has a director in charge of club fundraising, Lindsay Jakus, who organized this years event. Jakus is pleased with how the evening played out.
“It was a great night with fun had by all,” she says. “The Selkirk Saddle Club would like to graciously thank all the businesses that donated and contributed to this event. It is what makes this event so amazing! We also want to thank all the attendees who not only bid on items, but also donate just by purchasing a ticket and showing up. The club and the horsies thank you all.”
“We are already excited for next year!”
