We recently learned that good things really do come in small packages--and that they're donated by thoughtful and generous people! After hearing about the work we do, the Hats Off to Liz team was given a 2014 CNE Super Family Pass worth $148 to raffle off to our local team members! The pass consists of two Admission Passes and two Ride All Day passes (admission and unlimited midway rides). We didn't approach the CNE and ask for this; they simply heard about what we do from a friend of Hats Off To Liz and decided they wanted to give us a little something, just because.
I know! When does that ever happen?!
Anyway, we decided to put the names of the local members in a hat and draw a winner, and that lucky winner was the lovely and talented Elizabeth Rossi, one of our fabulous crocheters (who specializes in funky brimmed chemo caps)!
And thank you SO much to Joanne Benerowski, Manager, Advance Sales & Community Relations at the Canadian National Exhibition. We are very grateful for your support and generosity. It was nice to be able to offer this exiting little reward to one of our loyal members.
The CNE begins on Friday, August 15 and runs through September 1, 2014. Make sure to stop by for a waffle cone and wander through the grounds of the CNE--one of the top 10 agricultural fairs in North America and Canada's largest community event!
See you at the EX! I'll be the one with the yarn.
