On Saturday, March 5th Heather and John Williams joined The Children’s Foundation Guardian Angel family as they were honoured, in front of a record 320 guests, at the foundation’s annual gala that raised $130,000! The Guardian Angel Award was created 16 years ago to recognize philanthropic leadership of individual(s) and groups.
Gala Co-Chairs, Golda and Tom Lafferty commented,” The night was truly magical. We were honoured and humbled by the generosity of our community, who once again, supported The Children’s Foundation so we can continue to provide support for children and youth in our area. “
The Children’s Foundation Executive Director Connie Reid remarked, “Heather and John Williams have chosen to support area children not only with their donations, but with their time and encouragement for others to follow their example. They fully embrace the Foundation’s motto, “That no child or youth will do without and every child and youth will have equal opportunities to help them realize their fullest potential in life.”
