Flaman Group of Companies and Arc Alloy have teamed up to raise money for an 18-year-old hurt in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
Layne Matechuk is one of the 13 survivors of the April crash that killed 16 people.
He remains in Saskatoon City Hospital recovering from his injuries.
Matechuck’s mom works at Arc Alloy in Colonsay. Flaman vice-president of sales Jim Kelley said that makes her part of the Flaman family.
“After the accident, the general manager and president of Arc Alloy reached out to me,” Kelley said Thursday on Gormley. “We had a discussion on how we could help the Matechuck family.”
They decided to create a special Humboldt Broncos Pro Grain Bagger to be sold during the Ag in Motion farm show, which runs July 17 through 19 near Langham.
“(Arc Alloy) made one specific unit that is designed and painted in Humboldt Broncos colours with the Bronco logo and Layne’s number,” Kelley said.
The unit costs $36,500. People wanting to buy it can enter a draw during Ag in Motion.
“Everything —and I mean every dollar— will go to the Matechuck family,” Kelley said.
People can enter the draw until noon on Thursday, July 19.
The winner will be announced at 5 p.m.
Entries can be submitted online, at Flamans’ Saskatoon location or at the farm show.
