On the shores of Stuart Lake, the Binche Bu Society has been busy fundraising.

The society is a non-profit group that supports the whole of Binche and oversees all sports and recreation initiatives of its members, men, women, youth and elders.

The Binche Bu Society fundraises for various events such as: Annual New Year’s Celebrations, Easter Egg Hunts, supports the Binche Steelers Men’s Fastball Team, Binche Days, Christmas Dinner and gifts.

Just recently, Binche held a very successful raffle where 7000 tickets were printed and sold by Binche staff and volunteers.

The third prize was a $1500 Pellet BBQ donated by Binche Bay Store and was won by Stuart Todd of Nak’azdli Band.

The second prize, a $3,000 Costco gift card was won by Ronald Monk of Tachie.

And the first prize was a Yamaha Viking Side by Side valued at $13,999 and was won by Flora Abraham of Takla Landing, B.C.

The Binche Society would like to thank all those who supported and purchased tickets in the raffle and they look forward to seeing everyone at the Binche Administration Building’s grand opening on May 21.
