Dance to aid burned out restaurant employees

After months of planning, that dance is just a couple weeks away, slated for Saturday, Nov. 21

Almost immediately after Duncan’s White Spot restaurant was destroyed by fire, organizers began planning a fundraising dance for its employees.

After months of planning, that dance is just a couple weeks away, slated for Saturday, Nov. 21 at the Eagles Hall in Duncan.

Things kick off at 8 p.m. and band Row of Crowz has donated its time to play for the cause.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the York Street Diner.

Check Facebook’s #619 White Spot Benefit Dance page for more information.

Rhonda Ring-Campbell, one of the dance’s organizers, managed the White Spot for six years.

“It was our store and our home. It has hit home really hard,” she said. “Most of the staff, a lot of them I hired when they were kids. They’ve been there for a very long time. There’s three staff members that have been there since the store opened. That was 20 years ago. It’s a store that gives so much to the community.”

Duncan Eagles local 2546 stepped up this week with a donation for the cause.

Recently Eagles 2546 president Ed Kehler and past president Jim Drummond presented Campbell and White Spot employees Fawn Allan and Jane McConnell with a $1,000 cheque.

The Eagles challenge other service clubs to donate as well.

Cheques, made out in trust to Duncan Whitespot benefit dance, can be dropped at the Duncan Eagles lounge located at 2965 Boys Rd.
