An astounding $7500 was donated to the Prentice Family, to help Preston obtain a service dog. Preston has beaten cancer, and is also Type 1 Diabetic. A properly trained service dog can help detect when Prestons insulin levels drop even when hes sleeping, which is quicker than medical equipment. The family hasn't reached their goal just yet, but we will continute to support the family until they do.
$500 was donated to The OPP KIDS (Knowledge, Issues, Decisions, Supports) program. OPP Kids helps children in Wasaga Beach with five core issues including youth and the law; peer-to-peer relationships; online and social-media awareness; drug awareness; and mental-health awareness.
$500 Was raised and set aside to help The Worsley Elementary School concert band, who won gold at the MusicFest Canada Nationals in Ottawa in May, 2019. The band, directed by Steve Ferris, proudly represented Wasaga Beach, had previously come very close to getting to the nationals the previous year.
$500 was donated to the YMCA to help support Zacks Bracelts for Swimming, which is a fundraising initiative started by Melissa Haskett. Melissa Haskett's son Zack, passed away at 6 years old, and Melissa's goal is to fund swimming lessons for children of all ages. In the event of an emergency in the water, more kids will be able to have the skills to prevent accidential drownings.
