Thursday and Saturday offered some surprising and generous donations for one well-known local organization – Haying in the 30's. On Thursday, Kissel, along with Vollrath, St. Paul's world long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski, and curling champion Marcel Rocque, joined together, and each offered up a signed piece of equipment, raising a total of $7,000 for Haying in the 30's through a live auction of the items.

Then on Saturday, after taking Mayor Glenn Andersen on stage, and Dragon Den's Brett Wilson, Kissel announced that the Hometown Homecoming committee would be donating $5,000 to Haying in the 30's and $5,000 to Fort McMurray wildfire efforts.

One of the area’s biggest and most popular fundraisers is set to launch this August long weekend for its 16th year, but more volunteers could be used to make sure the event is once again a success, says president of Haying in the 30s Lorne Buryn.

The event, which recreates farming and community life in the 1930s, draws more than 5,000 visitors from far and wide to the venue near Mallaig. Admission, food and entertainment are free, but people can choose to donate, and in past years, well over $200,000 has been raised over the course of two days, with all the funds going to support those affected by cancer.
