Kelly-Anne Drummond cocktail fundraiser

Nov. 28th is just around the corner. It will be a bittersweet day filled with emotions. Kelly-Anne would have been 29 years old on that day.....I wonder what she would have become and what she would have accomplished in the past four years had she still been with us. I know for sure that she would have gone to Germany this past July to complete again in the world lifesaving championship. Being amongst the best in the world is quite a challenge and to have the opportunity to compete against the best is for many an athletic''s dream come true. I truly believe that one needs to compete outside of their our environment to really see how good they really are. And that is exactly why la Fondation Kelly-Anne Drummond exists.

This past July two of her close lifesaving friends did compete in Germany. They will say a few words at the fundraiser next week in Kelly-Anne's honor. The fundraiser will include an award ceremony to honor those lifeguards to have taken their sport to a higher level. Wine and beer will be served along with a great nibbles from Le Tambour caterers. Marc Lalonde, news editor from The Chronicle West Island is the Honorary President for this event. Christmas Balls will be available for sale that evening along with beautiful items which will be part of a silent auction. Some of the items include a beautiful painted portrait of Kelly-Anne by a West Island artist, Fruit & Passion gift baskets, gifts certificates etc.

Tickets are still available by calling the Lifesaving society at 514-252-3100. Donation $50.00 A tax receipt will be issued for a portion of the donation.
