CANCER FUND RAISING
Fund Raiser for Cancer @ Alberta Holstein AGM - February 12, 2016
Many people may feel overwhelmed, scared, anxious or upset if you have been diagnosed with cancer - these are all normal feelings. It’s very important to have support from family, friends, health professionals or other services to help you cope with cancer. As you may all know this, we have had several people directly affected by this in our industry. This has left a lasting effect with all we know but especially with Joop Garretsen whose son was diagnosed last year. At this year’s Alberta Holstein AGM, Joop has offered to shave his hair (that evening) which he has been growing for over the last 5 years, if we raise more than $5000.00. Forms can be filled out and e-mailed to email@example.com or filled in and brought to the meeting. We will have updates during the day as to where the total is so that we may help Joop in meeting his goal. Please fill in Alberta Holstein under event name on the form. If you have any questions please contact Bob Reck @ 403-382-1062 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
