On Wednesday, September 12th, the community of Banff will be coming together at Wild Bill’s Legendary Saloon in support of long-time local Mike McCollin and his family.

Mike has been off work and on disability after suffering a stroke in 2014.  His recovery seemed to be going well until a second stroke nearly a year ago left him with Cognitive Dementia.  Too young to meet the requirements for assisted living at any of our local seniors homes, he’s currently waiting for a placement in Calgary.  His family faces a monthly $2500 bill for assisted living costs.

I spoke with Mike’s friend Jay Hay about the fundraiser they’re organizing at Wild Bill’s which will feature food and drink specials, live music, and tons of raffle and silent auction prizes.

The event takes place Wednesday, September 12th, beginning at 6 PM.  You can also support Mike through a gofundme page.
