CFRY Most Promising Performer winner Madeline Nickel with Co-host Travis Roberts.
It came as no surprise that the community of Ashern came together last night to raise $20,675 during the CFRY Radio Amateur Talent Show night. Not only was it an evening filled with generosity but the talent that graced the stage was also top-notch. Receiving recognition for their accomplishments included Charmaine and Dakota Monk who performed a duet and were awarded 3rd spot by the judges, receiving $25. In the runner-up position was Courtney Granberg who used her singing to wow the crowd and get $50. Then taking 1st from the judges along with being recognized as CFRY's Most Promising Performer was 15-year-old Madeline Nickel who played guitar and sang. She also received $100 for coming in 1st.
The other highlight of the night was a late donation coming just moments before midnight as Charmaine and Dakota Monk were pledged $4,000, giving them the edge in money raised on the evening. All the funds will be going towards repairing the roof at the Ashern Arena along with some facility upgrades. Those who wish to still donate can do so by sending a cheque made payable to Ashern Arena Board, Box 576 Ashern Manitoba, R0C 0E0. Pledges can also be dropped off at the Noventis Credit Union Ashern Branch. All donations must be in by February 9th.
