WAVERLEY: It was a dazzling night of support for youth sport and recreation in our communities on April 27.

A total of $8,000 was raised, organizers said, for youth through the Community Champions gala organized and put on by the Fall River & Area Business Association (FRABA).

When we spoke to them on the night of the event, they had hoped to raise more than $6,000, and exceeded that number once it was all said and done.

The night featured great entertainment, delectable treats, and some drinks from a variety of local vendors all in support of local youth activities, arts, and sports.

There was even some non-alcoholic drinks available, and finger food from The Fourth Lock.

Tyler MacNeil, from Premier Mortgage, spoke at the start of the night to the more than 150 or so in attendance.

A complementary drink glass will be provided by Instant Imprints, a FRABA member.

All funds raised on the night are going to the FRABA Community Youth Activity & Sport Committee so they can give it back to local youth activities in the community.


The Community Champions Gala took place April 27 at Cheema Aquatic Club, located at 135 Champions Way in Waverley.

Lower Sackville crooner Jon Cyr was the musical entertainment for the night.
