Coldest Night of the Year event exceeds donation goal

Many in our city put on their walking boots for a great cause on February 20th. The Coldest Night of the Year raised just over $65,000 and climbing for charities in Lethbridge. This money will go towards helping the homeless and addressing hunger issues in Southwest Alberta.

This year’s event was held at the Land-O-Lakes Golf Course & Country Club in Coaldale.

Virtual walkers for the Coldest Night of the Year have until February 28th to finish their walks.

This money will go directly to those in our city who are facing the cold weather, and will provide support through the outreach team at Streets Alive Mission.

Jennifer Lepko, the Director of Fund Development at Streets Alive Mission, says that she’d really like the event to hit the $70,000 mark for donations, “We have such an amazing community, that I have no doubt we can do it.”

The public can still donate to the event until February 28th by visiting
