The Moose Jaw Little League All-Stars were out doing their part fundraising for their trip to the Little League Canadian Championship on Saturday afternoon during a barbecue at all three Co-Op locations.
Each of the spots reported brisk activity most of the day, with plenty of supporters on hand looking to pick up a burger and a drink for $5 and do their part to help the team as they gear up for the week-long tournament in Ancaster, Ont.
The fundraising efforts aren’t over just yet, either.
The All-Stars also have a Drop and Go account set up at Sarcan for anyone with recyclable bottles who would like to make a donation. Simply register under MJ Major AAA and drop off your recyclables at the local facility.
The final local pre-tournament event for the team will take place Monday, July 29 as the All-Stars invite the community and surrounding area a send-off party at Boston Pizza.
That event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with tickets $20 for adults and $10 for children, including an eight-inch pizza and Caesar salad or any meal from the kids menu. Tickets must be purchased in advance, contact Michele at 306-631-9591 for more information.
