The numbers are in from last Friday’s benefit concert for families affected by the Humboldt Broncos bus crash and as expected, Saskatchewan came through.
A grand total of 428-thousand was raised, meaning the Country Thunder Foundation was able to write 29 cheques for $14,769.85 for each family,
Country Thunder spokesperson Gerry Krochak said being from Saskatchewan, he knew people would come through in the way they did
Humboldt Strong T-Shirts sold at the concert raised $15-thousand for the SJHL assistance fund.
Jerseys donated by past and present NHL’ers along with the 50/50 for the Humboldt Strong Community Foundation resulted in just under $160,000 being raised.
