THANK YOU for supporting our 5th Annual MS BONSPIEL!!!
Your generosity has been and will continue to be very much appreciated!!
We are proud to say that we have succeeded AGAIN!!!
This year we registered 2 full draws (16 teams, 64 curlers) and we raised $6417.25.
This brings our running total over the four years to $30,016.05!!!
The money raised will be combined with our fundraising for the Woodstock MS Walk slated for May 6, 2018. Proceeds from our bonspiel and the MS Walk will benefit all people living with Multiple Sclerosis.
In total, when combining the money that we have raised at the bonspiels AND other monies raised for the walk, “Team Wood and Friends” has raised $56,388.13 as of April 8, 2018.
In the coming weeks, we hope to exceed $60, 000.00.
Once again we received a fantastic community response and were able to have a prize for everyone.
And our silent auction table was another huge success!!
Everything came together for this event and it was a wonderful way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
We all enjoyed the day with GREAT FOOD, GOOD FUN and FABULOUS FRIENDS!
Without your donation of prizes and sponsorship this would not have been possible.
Our very sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the individuals and companies
that helped to make it a very special day for us!Can you imagine…
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
…a future without MS
I’ve registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
