Saturday night was a blast from the past style fundraiser for the Medicine Hat Food Bank. They hosted All That Jazz at the Cypress centre, a 1920’s themed evening with great music, lots of laughs and memories made. It was a very successful night as over $500,000 was raised to support the Food Bank’s Community Food and Wellness Center.
