Lisa Waldorf of Oragami Owl set up shop to sell her wares at the Telemiracle Trade Show on Saturday, which tool place at the Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre.

Tony and Tammy Kaminski held a trade show to raise money for Telemiracle at the Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre over the weekend, which brought in $1,248 for the charity.
“We just started out as doing a trade show,” said Tony, said.
“We organized it and we decided we might as well raise money for Telemiracle because they helped my wife out about seven years ago.”
In order to expand the event and raise more funds the Kaminskis decided to have a silent auction and 50/50 draw.
The silent auction took place from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and there were roughly 30 vendors who set up at the centre. 
Kaminski said they had a similar show two years ago and raised a couple hundred dollars for Telemiracle, so this time they decided to go outside of the box and round up items for the silent auction to try and up the numbers.
Telemiracle is a cause that hits home with Kaminski as they also helped out another relative of his that was dealing with cerebral pasly.
“Telemiracle is a good organization; they raise money and help (people out) and you see where every dollar is going, which is really good,” he said.
“When I was working and we needed to take time off, they helped us out with the fuel and wheels and lodging.”
