Monday, June 25th 2012 07:00

The Olds Emergency Shelter Society teamed up with 96.5 CKFM to auction off a pair of Garth Brooks tickets on Friday.

It was a bidding war as Garth Brooks tickets were auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Olds Emergency Shelter Society.

The tickets ended up going to the Sundre Saloon for $4500 - an impressive beginning to the society's fundraising efforts.

Fundraising Chair Carol Johnston says there's a proven need for a facility in our community.

Johnston adds that while they can apply for grants, they expect to have to raise about $250 000 to build & furnish a facility in Olds.

More fundraising events are being planned for the near future including a wine tasting event in September.
