A few years ago, a gentleman by the name of Maurice Tetreault came to visit Katie’s Cottage. He had built a canoe and wanted to donate the canoe to the charity to raise funds. But due to Covid the plans had to be put on hold until this spring.
In May 2022 Maurice began to sell tickets in Carman, Morden, and Winkler. Maurice sold 2500 tickets for the canoe and 2 crokinole boards. The draw was held at Katie’s Cottage on July 4. Winners of the prizes are as follows, 1st prize Carolyn Mahara Fannystelle, 2nd prize crokinole board with a checkerboard on backside Joe Suderman, 3rd prize crokinole board Evan Loutchan. The fundraiser raised $5,000 in support of the charity.
Congratulations to the winners of the prizes. Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets in support of Katie Cares. We truly appreciate your support. The proceeds will be used to purchase beanie babies. Also, a heartfelt thank you Maurice for your time, energy and gifting the cottage with your beautifully built canoe and crokinole boards!!
See it…Believe it…Achieve it…
