Full Text

Dear editor, The Spinal Cord Society held its sixth annual raffle on May 13-14 at the Georgetown Market Place and raised $3,060 for cure research. As in years past, the community and local businesses supported the Halton Hills chapter. I am always very humbled by the amazing people who make up our community. I deeply appreciate the support I receive each and every year. This year a balloon artist from the Twisted Ones entertained the kids with amazing balloon art. Debbie also donated a vase flower combination made of balloons. She spent three hours preparing this beautiful piece. I decided to use this to help Bethany Winter of Georgetown with an impromptu raffle. The funds would help support the Winters in making a private space in their home for their disabled daughter. The raffle for Bethany raised $285. I, along with Mr. and Mrs. Winter, am deeply touched by your support. Wayne MacDonald, Halton Hills SCS
