Our first meeting of 2018 was great – well attended by current members and we are so appreciative of seeing new faces!!
We started off our meeting with an update from Diana Rasmussen of ALS Society of Manitoba – the December charity of choice. Diana shared with us how much our donation means to their organization-our $8500 funding provided much needed voice recognition aides for their residents with ALS. Joining Diana (right) to hold the giant cheque is Karen Manitowich (left), Laura Kwiatkowski and Angela – ALS Society of Manitoba.
Next, we heard from 3 members who presented their favourite charities:
Wpg Humane Society – Karen McNeill
Agape Table – Carolyn Jarvin
ALS Society of MB- Light up a Life
The chosen charity was Candace House.
Donations must be received – whether you attended the meeting or not – no later than Friday, March 16th, 2018.
