Fundraiser successful

Lac du Bonnet Leader Letter

Re: First cut is the longest, March 20

I want to show my appreciation to everyone who supported me with pledges for my hair cutting campaign. This was my first fundraiser and it was a great experience.

Adele Vallencourt generously donated her time to cut our hair as did Amanda Gooding who raised over $400 and also cut her hair for cancer.

Amanda had 12 inches cut and even though I had 15 inches cut, I still have enough left to cut it again in a couple of years. Mrs. Doris Lussier and Kylie also donated their hair and one of our teachers Mrs Reynolds. All hair donations will be made into wigs for cancer patients.

The money we raised will be combined with the Ashley Kovari fund which will be set up as a sub fund under the Lac du Bonnet Charitable Foundation.

Even though my fundraiser has ended, I hope everyone continues to contribute to the LDB Foundation in some way or another. The Foundation is a really great thing for our community because the more money raised for the LDB Foundation, the more interest is generated, and this is what goes back into supporting the people of our community.
