Monday, October 26, 2009

This Sunday we held our first annual fundraiser/fashion show at a Hilton hotel next to the Gatineau Casino. Since it was the first year I wasn't quite sure what type of response we could expect you know how it is although people may try their best you cannot bank on success. The person in charge of our division is a relatively new employee yet came with impressive credentials regarding fundraising events and things of the sort, let me tell you the crowd blew me away. There were hundreds of people paying $50 a head for brunch, a fashion show hosted by one of our popular radio stations, raffles for various prizes it was great and I wish to congratulate those who took part in the organization of this event, absolutely fantastic we will certainly be there next year.

There were few speakers which was nice, these events normally get tied down with so many people after a while anything they say becomes a blur and no one really pays any attention. The speeches were limited to basically two and one of those was given by a neurologist who specializes in multiple sclerosis. It was a good presentation better suited for a Dr. or pharmaceutical convention yet nonetheless it provided good information.

I'm also glad to report that after approximately 2 years I finally received the green light regarding my van modifications. There were so many is hard to imagine, the last which was installed last week "a crash tested seat belt" to replace the one I previously utilized on my electric chair.

Have a great day
