Life4Dew Fund-raising Dance, December 14, 2013, Carleton Place

Brea Lawrenson kicked off the Life4Dew Fund-raising Dance December 14, 2013, in Carleton Place

The Life4Dew Fund-raising Dance was held Saturday, December 14, 2013, at the Carleton Place Arena to raise funds for Dew Rotor and her family for extraordinary expenses while on the waiting list for a double-lung transplant and for post-transplant care. It was a snowy night but a few souls braved the cold and the snow to come out and support this worthwhile cause, enjoy some auction fever and some fabulous music. Our thanks to everyone who came.

In particular, we would like to thank Emcee Jerry Flynn, Carleton Place Councillor, who did a magnificent job keeping the evening moving along. Special thanks to our musical acts: Brea Lawrenson; Johnny Spinks; Lyle Dillabough (and stage manager); Gerry Turcotte and his band, GT and the Earthones; and Brent King who provided us with toe-tapping music. Well played everyone!
