Moore family fonds
Spitfire Fund $7,000 on Way to Objective
Draw for Pictures To Be Made Soon, Committee Reports
The Banff-Jasper Spitfire Fund which has already made a contribution of $7,000 to Wings for Britain, will hold the draw for paintings by noted Canadian artists shortly, according to an announcement made this week by the committee in Banff. Objective of the Spitfire Fund committee is at least $23,000. A substantial portion of the money already sent in has been raised by the sale of tickets on six valuable paintings donated by the following well-known artists: Roland Gissing, Peter Whyte, Belmore Brown, Roland Jackson, Carl Rungius Nicolas de Grandmaison.
EXHIBITED IN CALGARY
The paintings, which have already been exhibited in Banff and Calgary, where tickets have been sold since last summer, will be on display in Winnipeg for a fortnight starting April 27 and will then probably go to Edmonton and sometime in the late spring or early summer the draw will be made. The Banff committee, which is composed of Mrs. Harold Macdonald, Mrs. C. M. Walker, Miss Agnes Hammond and Mrs. P. A. Moore, to whom contributions may be sent, has raised money in various other ways also and will continue to do so until the objective is reached. Flower sales, a raffle for a sports coat and one for a bob sled as well as the "Mile of Pennies" held last year have all raised large sums for the fund.
