“We're at that critical stage where if we don't bump up our numbers, we will be having to look at unfortunately cancelling due to poor ticket sales.”

Benjamin emphasized the gala is a charitable event.

“It's a fundraiser that we're hosting between the emergency services, between police, fire, ambulance, the Tisdale Legion and to Victim Services.”

The event is a black-tie affair and will feature supper, entertainment and a silent auction.

Tickets are available at RWB Communications or the Tisdale RCMP. Organizers will have to make a decision by Sept. 30.

The gala is planned to be held at the Tisdale RECplex on Saturday, Oct. 5. Cocktails begin at 5:30 p.m., while dinner starts at 6 p.m.
