KAWARTHA LAKES-Community Care hosted their 2nd Annual Jingle & Mingle fundraising event at the North Kawartha Community Centre on December 2 and raised over $4,000 to help support programs in Apsley and throughout the Municipality of North Kawartha.
“The evening was magical, and everyone enjoyed the festive dinner catered by Heaven on Seven,” said Katie Bryck – Community Care’s Community Development Coordinator in Apsley. “We danced the night away and have the photos to prove it! Sofia with Newtown Photography donated her time and talent to capture our event.”
“This event would not have been a success without our dedicated group of fundraising volunteers, who worked endless hours promoting our event, selling tickets, and ensuring the decorations were elegant and perfect. Thank you to all of our volunteers, who continue to help support us and the local community,” added Bryck.
Event sponsors were Clark Breuls ReMax, Apsley Veterinary Services, McWilliams Moving & Storage, Dan Joyce Clothing, and North Kawartha Lakes Association.
“We would also like to thank all of our generous donors for this event, which includes a long list of local businesses and community members who weren’t able to attend our event. We are pleased to announce that we raised over $4000.00 to support the Apsley office,” added Bryck.
