The first fundraising event for AquAbility was a huge success!
130 people came out to support AquAbility at the Wild West Party held at the home of board member Don Oliphant and his wife Judy. It was a beautiful, warm evening. Everyone was decked out in their wild west duds. Down at the tepee, the children had supervised games, nature walks, archery, dinner and s’mores by the campfire. The adults enjoyed a delicious meal catered by Raspberries, and had fun bidding on silent auction items. Derek Agnew, general manager at Zenergy Health Club, was the animated auctioneer for the live auction items.
AquAbility director Karen Morrison wishes to thank all the volunteers and guests who have helped make this fundraiser a success. The funds raised will help us provide therapeutic swimming for the physically challenged and for wounded veterans in our programs throughout the year.
