Thank You

Vanessa, Kyle and our family would like to thank everyone for your generous support during a difficult time. 2016 was a fundraising success. We raised  $20,512.16 through events and the rest through online donations.

And we are off to a great start in 2017!

Dance classes have restarted at Hope.

Presently, we have raffle tickets for an autographed Sidney Crosby jersey.

Vanessa and Kyle are still in Toronto. Vanessa spent the holidays in hospital  (6 weeks) due to a cold. She is now out of hospital & at this point  she continues to be stable with good days and bad days.

We are forever grateful for your continued prayers, love and support.


We’re holding a raffle with prizes perfect for a hockey fan!

1ST Prize – an autographed Sidney Crosby Jersey.

2ND Prize – a Scotia Hockey box (seats 14) for March 17/17, which is a Friday night. It is the second to last game of the season between the Halifax Mooseheads and the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles

There is an alternate second prize for those who are out of province but want to participate. It is a $100 Cineplex gift card.

The draw is March 5th.
