Team Peter Funspiel delivers huge support
Thank you doesn't express the deep gratitude and appreciation that go out to OCC members and other friends and family who attended the March 25th Team Peter Funspiel - in support of Peter Glover, our family and the ALS journey we find ourselves on. What an inspiring and uplifting event that was. And fun! Together this wonderful community raised over $20,000 towards Peter's care - absolutely remarkable and a testament to the goodness in so many and the strength of the human spirit. Be proud, each and every one of you, for your participation and your contribution - this sort of funding makes personal care and specialized equipment more attainable as Peter's needs escalate.
Special hugs to Scott Fisher for his tremendous $800 contribution raised by outplaying so many at the crokinole table.
The team organizing this event was absolutely amazing and worked tirelessly behind the scenes, and in front, to stage a seamless, well-run event for all to enjoy. Thank you, so much, to our club wonder Dalal and ace organizers Laura Trinkle-Mulcahy, Diane Lagace, Fiona Murray, Natalie Fletcher, Maureen and Tony Antonello, Lisa Presley-Burke, Mike Burke, Kim Eaton, Richard Scott, Charles Mulcahy, Sandy and Dave Hood, Alan Tyndall, Gary Corbett, Tom Lagace and a raft of volunteers.
Those who delivered silent auction and raffle items - excellent work. And those who brought a wonderful variety of snacks - delicious and we're still eating the leftovers. Those who came to curl - work on your short game. And those that came to dance - party on.
Carol Anne Meehan shot some video at the event, posted to her March 25th blog:
We were humbled and honoured to be the recipients of so many good wishes, such a terrific event and such generous donations. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Peter, Pat, Jack and Hanna
If you weren't able to attend, or would like to do more in support of Peter's ALS fund, a gofundme site has been set up in his name. The proceeds from the Funspiel will be added to this fund, giving us a very solid funding base to draw upon in the coming months. https://www.gofundme.com/Help-Peter-Glover-manage-ALS-at-home
