Tuesday is Fuel Good Day at the two Dauphin Co-op gas bar locations. 

10 cents from every litre of fuel sold at both locations on Tuesday will be given to the Court project in Ste Rose. 

Dauphin Co-op Marketing and Community Relations Manager Joan Chetyrbok says the Court project was selected through an application process that took place this spring.

"Everything we have heard about the Court Project in the news is that the whole community is behind it and it is something that is really needed in Ste Rose.  So we are happy to get behind it as well."

Chetyrbok hopes the entire region will take part in this event.

"I really want to encourage everybody to please hold off filling your gas tanks until Tuesday.  If you have to run on fumes please do so, and come out and support the court project."

There will also be a fundraising barbecue at both locations from 11 until 1:30, with proceeds from that also going to the project. 

You can place an order for the barbecue in advance by calling or texting 204-648- 5309. 

Chetyrbok says they traditionally raise around five grand through Fuel Good Day, but she is hopeful they can beat that mark this year.

"We are also taking donations that day at both gas bars.  Anyone that gives a donation of any size will get a Fuel Good Day air freshener."

Since its launch of Fuel Good Day in 2017, the Dauphin Co-op has been able to donate a combined thirty-thousand dollars to six different local charities.
