Several other New West performers were also part of the show including Scott Carpenter and Jessica Ens.

Outside the Sterndale Bennett, there were a variety of articles up for grabs in a silent auction including hockey  memorabilia, gift baskets, golf packages and a lot more. The event was nearly sold out on both nights, Feb. 5-6, and is expected to raise a similar amount of money as previous years. All of it stays in Southern Alberta to help patients with kidney problems.
