Benefit coming for Chris Byers


A benefit for the family of Chris Byers will be taking place on Saturday, August 2 at the Wylie-Mitchell building in Estevan.

Byers was killed in an ATV accident east of Lampman in mid-June. He was 30 years old. He and his fiancé, Jolene Pettapiece, had raised six children, and they had purchased a home in Lampman to raise their family. The couple was to be married on August 2.

“With Chris' passing, Jolene and the kids are left with many costly expenses to take care of,” a poster for the event states.

Kayla Simon is a cousin to Pettapiece, and one of the organizers for the event. She said that it will open with supper at 6 p.m. They have already cut off ticket sales for the supper, as about 400 tickets have been sold.

An adults cabaret will begin at 10:30 p.m. Deejay Angela Clements will be supplying music. Tickets will be available at the door.

There will also be a silent auction and a raffle. A television, patio set, barbecue and other items will be available.

The raffle item will be a 2014 Can-Am Maverick XRS four-seat all-terrain vehicle.

Simon said they have received tremendous support from businesses throughout southeast Saskatchewan.

She hopes that they can raise enough money to make life as comfortable as possible for Byers' family.

“Any dollars (that we raise) is better than what we started with,” she said.

A trust fund has been set up at the Affinity Credit Union's Lampman branch to support the Byers family.
