What a day we had on Thursday! Our Curbside Poppy Fundraiser was an overwhelming success that exceeded anything I could have imagined. It would not have been possible without the dedication and efforts of all of you. From the bottom of my heart I thank each and everyone of you for making it a success.
A total of $2,276.85 was raised for the Poppy Fund and our Veterans.
Special thanks to my Father Harold Onagi and Jody’s son Brandon Cohoe-Smart for volunteering their time for this cause!
Huge Thanks to Club Member Brooke Onagi and Club Manager Jody Smart for their incredible work getting everything ready leading up to yesterday so we could have this event in the first place and with all their efforts helping during the event!
Thank you to the Charleswood Legion League Curlers Rose and Phil Otis for jumping on board and dedicating your time to making this idea a reality!
Finally I wish to express our thanks to our Webmaster / Social Media Director Kevin for getting the word out and updating our social media platforms. We had many people show up because they heard about it from the media outlets. We had people who heard about it and came out from as far away as Fort Richmond, The HCS as well as other parts of the city! We had people driving up just to drop off money and didn’t want a Poppy as they were already wearing one. What an incredible day!
In the meantime on behalf of Al, myself and the rest of the AMCC Board thanks again!
