Cornwall Ontario — The Canadian Diabetes Association will be hosting a Silent Auction at Cornwall Square on Saturday, March 23rd and Sunday, March 24th at the top of the escalator (entrance of the Food Court). Half of the proceeds will go to support the Canadian Diabetes Association and the other half will go towards the trust fund of two special needs girls who lost their mother to diabetes six days before Christmas. Please come and support this great cause this weekend.
Organizer Kelsie Granger explains, “We are a group of four girls from St. Lawrence College in the Social Service Worker Program who have organized a series of fundraisers to raise money for The Canadian Diabetes Association and the trust fund of two young special needs girls who lost their mother to diabetes six days before Christmas. However these fundraisers are not only about raising money; they are about creating awareness and educating the public on the effects of diabetes and how such a terrible disease can be prevented by eating healthy and staying active. We held a silent auction at the 1000 Islands Mall in Brockville last weekend and raised a grand total of $1822.75! We live in such a generous society and we are hoping that our next event, another silent auction on Saturday March 23rd and Sunday March 24th at the Cornwall Square will be another great success. We would like to thank everyone for all their support and we hope to see you all this Saturday and Sunday at the Cornwall Square. We will also be hosting a bowlathon on Saturday April 6th, at 2:00pm and 4:00pm at Olympia Bowl and are still looking for teams to register. They can email Kelsie Granger at KGranger09@sl.on.ca or Nicole Gillissie at NGillissie23@sl.on.ca for more information or to register a team.
