Concert raises money for Jaedyn Amann’s family

A fundraiser for the Amann family is being held this Friday night at the Sportsman Pub in Ladysmith.

A fundraising concert to support the family of Jaedyn Amann will be held this Friday (July 20) at the Sportsman Pub.

The concert will feature live music by Stone Vaughn Toole and Kush, as well as a 50/50 draw.

The fundraiser starts at 9 p.m. Donations will be taken at the door, and all proceeds go to the Amann family, who lost their five-year-old girl. Jaedyn Amann was killed July 4 when she was struck by a falling soccer goal post in Watson Lake, Yukon.

Her parents, Paul Amann and Tara Hicks, live in the Yukon and in Cedar, and she was about to start kindergarten out in the Cedar district.

Since the tragedy, friends and family have come together to support the family. A trust fund has been set up at Island Savings. A garage sale, bake sale and barbecue is being planned for July 28 at Bethel Church, and a beer and burger and silent auction are planned for July 31 at the Eagles Hall.
