Georgetown Yarn and Crafts, once again, hosted a successful Knit for the Cure event this past weekend. Over the two-day event the 28 participants, including from left, Joan McLeish of Terra Cotta, store owner Diane Crawford, and `survivor' Lillian Schuch of Waterdown, raised $11,500 through pledges, sponsors and a silent auction. The ladies also knit and crocheted squares to be made in to three blankets that will be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, who in turn will auction them off. Knit for the Cure will continue to accept donations at the store on Guelph St. until November 15. All money donated is the Canadian Photo by Shawn McAlpine Breast Cancer Foundation.
