Final Totals Are In

I am very happy to report that approximately $8,000 was raised through ticket sales, donations, sale of silent auction items and the 50/50 draw at the Clean Water for Africa Cocktail Party May 18. That is actually about $1,000 more than required so the extra amount raised will go towards the education project. I am also very proud to say that this completes the Clean Water project as the well will be functional by August 31. Everyone who contributed to this project should have a feeling of pride too. You have all been part of this.

Success Story!

While the final numbers are not in yet, I am very pleased to announce that we successfully completed the fundraising for the well in Tanzania at our cocktail party last night. Any excess funds will be directed to the education project. Thank you to everyone who particpated through financial donations, attending the cocktail party, buying auction items and 50/50 tickets, working at the event and to those who have provided much needed morale support. It has been absolutely amazing! Special thanks to Randy Fitzpatrick and the staff at Petit Bill's, our excellent MC, Paul Brent, Dianne Cardin who gathered so many auction items and to Shannon Singh and others at Plan Canada who have been incredible throughout.
It is tremendously satisfying to know that a community will have so many more opportunities as a result of the access to clean water that we have collectively provided.
