His Worship gets worked over

It was all in good fun. And for a good cause. But some of the shots slung at Brandon Mayor Rick Chrest at a recent fundraising roast must have stung just a bit.

Creatively themed Breakfast for Dinner, the evening featured walkabout magicians Holden Lumbard and Brett Chrest. The roasters were former mayor/MLA/MP Rick Borotsik, city manager Scott Hildebrand, Coun. Jeff Fawcett (Assiniboine) and former deputy fire chief Gary Bell. The city’s first lady, Karen Chrest, was emcee.

The event drew 160 to the Victoria Inn was the brainchild of Coun. John LoRegio (Meadows-Waverly), presented by NetSet Communications, with proceeds going to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

The menu consisted of a breakfast buffet, which ended with a huge tray filled with bacon and sausages.

And at the head table, there was plenty of hamming it up from the roasters.
