Ky West Hotel hosting bushfire fundraiser on February 15

By Jared Prestwidge

THE Ky West Hotel will help bushfire victims yet again by hosting a live fundraiser on February 15.

From 2 pm, the event will feature a different local artist every hour until 9 pm when Bonsai Buffalo will take the stage until late.

Entry is $10, which will also enter you into a raffle full of different products all donated by members of the community.

Prizes include a two-night stay at Highview Waters Resort in Moama, a Mambo BMX bike and a Harley Davidson service.

All proceeds from the night will go towards bushfire relief in Wodonga.

Ky West Hotel owner Wayne Cowley said he had been amazed by the support from locals towards his past bushfire relief efforts and hoped this coming event would be the most successful yet.

“The local people around here aren’t doing well either but the kindness in their hearts to give what they have is crazy,” he said.

“People are so generous and always wanting to help people out no matter how hard they’re doing themselves.

“We’ll be having many raffles throughout the night, so all we’re asking is to buy a $10 ticket and all of that goes right to bushfire relief.”

The Ky West Hotel is also offering a free courtesy bus, which you can book by calling 5859 0277.
