Jack’s Family Fun Fair was a huge success once again this year! We raised over to $21,000 with all donations going towards research for a cure for MPS II.
I think it is safe to say that everyone, who attended left with a smile on their face and a ton of wonderful memories. I know that for me, seeing the children’s faces when they got to meet their favourite Princesses or Superhero’s made my heart swell and then to see the faces of those children’s parents or grandparents made me remember that is the little things in life that mean the most. It is a memory that I will hold on to forever...
To Our Community:
I have said it before and I will say it again, we are so lucky to live in a community that looks after their own. Since Jack was diagnosed last year, the outpouring of support has been so overwhelming. I hope everyone that came out on Saturday left with a ton of great memories for years to come and that you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves. We are so very grateful for your support!
To Our Sponsors and Donators:
Again, thank you to our amazing sponsors and to all who donated to our event.
We had lots of great prizes donated for our Raffle and Silent Auction. Thank you to those businesses and individuals, who so generously donated to the Fun Fair.
And thank you to everyone, who donated all those tasty treats for “Jack’s Sweet Treats”. These goodies were a hit with everyone!

To Our Volunteers:
Our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all of our Fun Fair volunteers! It is because of you that the day was such a huge success. Your hard work and amazing attitudes ensured that the day ran smoothly and that everyone, who attended left with a wonderful family experience.
A special thanks to our ‘Princesses’ and ‘Superhero’s’ for taking the time to say “Hello” and to pose for a picture with every child, who was so thrilled to meet them. You did an incredible job!
To The Ring Leaders:
A huge THANK YOU to my amazing and loving sister, Courtney Redmond! The Fun Fair would never have been the huge success it was without her hard work, determination and tireless efforts – not to mention her love and dedication to Jack.
Courtney is a leader, who make things happen and that is exactly what she did over the past several months in planning every aspect of the day. She loves my boys, like they are her own and she will do whatever it takes find a cure for Jack. I would not be where I am today without her. She makes me keep fighting!
Thank you to Courtney’s right hand, my wonderful mom, Bev Harrison. She worked tirelessly on making this event happen. She is the most loving and supportive mother a daughter could ask for.
And to my friends, Tina Dummitt and Erika McImoyle (Courtney’s left hands)...Thank you so much for your help and support. You are ‘key parts’ in my support system and I hope you know how much I appreciate you.
Go Team HOPE!
