Fundraiser boosts Creston housing society by nearly $4,000

Web Lead

Nearly $4,000 was raised for the Creston Valley Community Housing Society on Saturday night, when the Creston Hotel and Jimmy’s Pub and Grill hosted a fundraiser, which included a spaghetti dinner and live music.

A large part of the $3,800 came from Jimmy’s chef Demetre Karountzos, who offered to shave his 35-year moustache if he raised over $1,000.

The housing society is currently constructing a six-unit affordable family housing complex on 25th Avenue South.
