Chilliwack shows it has heart

I am writing today to thank the wonderful people who supported my fundraiser on Saturday, February 26 at the Evergreen Hall held in the hopes of raising enough funds to travel to the United States for me to receive treatment for my Multiple Sclerosis.

I have lived in Chilliwack virtually all of my life, and mistakenly thought that we had lost that small-town community spirit.

Boy was I wrong!

I cannot begin to thank all of the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated time, services and auction items, not to mention all of the people who came out in support of my cause, many of whom did it out of their sense of community spirit rather than because they had any idea of who it was they were helping.

My special thanks go out to Norm and Catherine Deveau who, along with an incredible team of people, organized and put together such an amazing evening. The event far surpassed anything that I could have ever imagined! Words cannot properly express my gratitude but thank you so very much to all who were a part of this.
