Interact Club sells bacon to help fundraise

Golden Interact Club sells bacon as part of fundraising efforts

The Interact Club nearly never stops fundraising for community initiatives and events, and this week is no exception.

Jumping into the new year, the Interact Club is already hosting a fundraiser to help support their many activities.

The idea came to them after they had heard about other clubs selling Canadian bacon in the past, explained International Relations Director Madison Ehman. The newest fundraiser has students selling Canadian bacon at a “price that can’t be beat.”

The club partnered with Pre-Pak Meats from Calgary to deliver farm raised maple smoked bacon, sliced and delivered fresh to Golden.

Orders come in 11lb boxes of uncooked bacon, which can be shared among friends and family, or stored frozen until use.

“It’s been pretty great,” Ehman said. “We’ve gotten lots of responses.”

Local businesses have teamed up with the Interact Club to offer free packages of bacon to their customers.

“Kicking Horse Ford has a new promotion going on, so it’s great for them to work with us,” Ehman said.

Kicking Horse Ford is offering a free box of bacon with every qualified test drive one of the 2017 Ford Fusion SE Luxury Edition to help the students reach their fundraising goals.

In addition Kardash Plumbing and Heating is hosting the chance two win two boxes of bacon with the purchase of hot tub chemicals or accessories until February 15.

The bacon sale is aiding the students in their fundraising efforts to bring projects to Golden, and for their international work.

“We’ve got a bunch of community events coming up, and a bunch of projects we have in mind,” Ehman said, adding that one includes teaming up with Kicking Horse Culture to provide a school event at the Civic Centre.

This weekend the Interact Club will be at Spirit Square selling hot chocolate as part of the Freeride World Tour celebrations.

The boxes of bacon are available to order until February 5, and pick up will be on February 16 from 4 to 6 p.m. and February 17 from 2 to 6 p.m.

They can be ordered online through their Facebook page, Interact Club of Golden, or by e-mailing
