A few days after Fred’s 16th Annual Golf-Cycling Classic, the Foundation team is deeply grateful and very happy…
We broke a record this year! A sum of $381,000 has been raised during our major fundraising activity of the year! This has been possible because we worked together, united, sharing the same goal of providing adequate services and accompanying Fred’s children that live with type 1 diabetes, as well as their families. Each and every person’s support is really valuable to us!
A special mention to Fred‘s three beautiful rays of sunshine: Sarah-Maude, Julien and Charli, who kindly agreed to join us, with their parents. Their voice on the stage, in front of nearly 300 people, has impressed and specially touched us all. Their authenticity, simplicity and honesty have caught the public’s attention.
Danielle D. Brien, Fred’s Executive Director, has prepared a message specifically addressed to them:
“A few words to deeply thank our V.I.P.s and their mothers who were present at our dinner during Fred’s Annual Golf-Cycling Classic, last Monday at La Vallée du Richelieu Golf Club. Sarah-Maude, Julien and Charli were brilliant ambassadors! Their speech fascinated the audience (more than 300 people) and helped us raise about $66,000 (!!!) during the silent and live auctions.
A big thank you to their mothers who join us, on a weekday, a day before their children go back to school, to support Fred’s effort! We appreciate what you have done for us and surely your children have conquered the hearts of many generous donors. Better than that, they made them understand what it is for a kid to live with type 1 diabetes. Fred says thank you!”
