On behalf of NOCLS, I would like to thank-you for your amazing support last night. With everyone’s efforts we raised $62,625.00.

This is not possible without the hard work of our committee: Pippa Shaw, Colin Hamilton, Sharon Kenney, Maggie Voisey, Dawn and Andrew Fradley. The artist’s generousity allows us the opportunity to experience their expressions and talents in the comfort of our homes, yet being receptive towards NOCLS. The same is true with Colin from Village Green Liquor Store while Maggie made up most of the wine baskets. For the fundraising group, your commitment is greatly valued as the group of Pippa Shaw ($10,340), Dean Barnard, Rod Dubland, Ryan Moitwenik, Jeanne Molitwenik and myself almost raised half of the total through seeking donations. Darcy does need mentioning as he certainly has much talent and skills as an auctioneer!

It is so difficult to so thank everyone who donated as not only is the list long but sure as one is sure I will miss someone . Without you last night this would not be possible, so thank-you.

Thank-you everyone and have a wonderful day.
