Rose Party leader Danielle Smith was the guest of honour at a private
fundraiser held Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at Heartwood Inn & Spa,
Zeke Wolf, Innkeeper told inSide Drumheller that
holding a fundraiser for the Wild Rose party was something he had in
mind for a few years. “I admire the Wild Rose Party and the common
sense approach they take on issues”, he said. “It takes money to run the
party and we wanted to get her here to enjoy our hospitality, and it is
a way for us to show support.”
The 15 guests dined on a
five-course dinner that included a variety of dishes prepared and served
by Zeke, Patrice and their staff. Also in attendance at the function
were Drumheller-Stettler MLA Rick Strankman, and Olds-Didsbury-Three
Hills MLA Bruce Rowe, plus former Conservative MLA and cabinet minister
Connie Osterman and her husband Joe. Osterman represented the Three
Hills constituency from 1979 to 1992.
Smith was able to connect
with some of her supporters at the exclusive event, while at the same
time raise some needed funds for the party.
