Brandon, MB. – Thursday night was an exciting night at Brandon’s Victoria Inn as the Provincial Exhibition of
Manitoba hosted a “sold out” President’s Dinner, which was marking its 25th Anniversary.

The event, which is held annually to raise money for Education in Agriculture, attracted over three hundred
people Thursday night and featured a “Trip around the World” and performances by East Indian, Scottish,
Ukrainian and Indigenous groups.

In addition to the dinner, the evening featured both live and silent auctions and among the high bids during the
evening were Box Seats to see the National Hockey League’s Winnipeg Jets, tickets to see the Wheat Kings
host Connor Bedard and the Regina Pats in a “sold out” game later this month as well as a Wine Dinner for
eight and tickets to watch a future Western Hockey League game in the Mazergroup private suite at Westoba

Among the many successful bidders were Branstone Financial Strategies, C&C Rentals and Recreation and
Sunrise Credit Union.

In addition to giving away several door prizes Thursday night, Robbie Zetariuk of Xplore Business was a big
winner, taking home a trip for two anywhere WestJet flies.

The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba plays a pivotal role in showcasing the importance of the agricultural
industry in our region. Studies indicate the organization has an economic impact of approximately $18 million
dollars annually to the City of Brandon.

Now that the 2023 President’s Dinner is in the books, the Provincial Exhibition can focus its attention on the
Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, scheduled for March 27th to April 1st in the Keystone Centre.
