BOTE had another successful year with our fundraiser for the Longest Day 2019. A donation of $4,000.00 was raised at the club and presented to the Alzheimer Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. We have asked the Society to provide us with a letter indicating the grand total of contributions once the direct and on-line contributions have been tallied.

Special thanks go to our Longest Day Committee members: Dan Regan, Shakti Chandra, Laura Flynn, Marylou Leeman, and Madonna Wadden. Many hours were spent making this event a great success. Thanks to Marilyn Bennett, Richard Lash, and Janet Parsons for devoting their time and talent to the supervised play fundraiser. Thanks also go to those who donated items for BOTE's silent auction, to those who purchased them and/or made donations, and to Rick Comerford who reviewed our collections and verified them against our supporting documentation. Well done everyone!
