WINCHESTER — The party was held in October. The cheque presentation took place in March. And COVID-19 has delayed the official announcement until now. But we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to say thank you to the generous women of Iroquois!
Spearheaded by Candace Latulippe and Evonne Delegarde, the event was called ‘Sugar Babies’ and it had a lively rock-and-roll theme. In all, $717 was raised for WDMH’s Diabetes Education Program.
The ladies-only event was held at the Iroquois Legion and all reports say it was a wonderful evening. Funds were raised through ticket sales, a 50/50 draw, and raffles. Guests competed in a variety of games and even enjoyed serenades from Elvis himself!
“Candace and Evonne have done a number of events like this for various charities and the WDMH Foundation is honoured to be included,” noted Cindy Peters, Manager of Direct Mail & Events. “Events like these, organized by generous community members, really make a difference and we are grateful!”.
WDMH’s Diabetes Education program supports people with diabetes, helping them to live well with the knowledge and support they need. The program includes individual appointments as well as group classes – all provided free of charge.
