Prince Albert’s Navy League program has a problem, but it’s one administrators are happy to have.

Due to an influx in enrolment, the cadet squadron is dealing with a shortage of uniforms. It’s a problem they hope to fix with a New Year’s Eve fundraiser at the Wildlife Federation Hall north of Prince Albert.

It costs the organization roughly $350 for each uniform, which will be used to outfit new cadets, as well as replace some of the older uniforms that have been worn for the past 10-15 years. In total, organizers are hopping to raise roughly $7,500 from the fundraiser for the new purchase, which will also help benefit the Prince Albert Sea Cadet program.

Local magician and entertainer Roger Boucher is set to headline the event, which is billed as a New Year’s Eve Hypnosis Show and Dance. There will also be a silent auction throughout the evening.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 8:15 p.m. Tickets cost $40 in advance or $50 at the door. They can be purchased by calling 930-8965 or 940-6114.
