We’ll be holding a fundraiser on Friday, February 28th at Fatboys Southern Smokehouse at 34 Murray Street in the Byward Market. This is a joint fundraiser with another climber for a different charity, so when you arrive, please make sure at the door they know you’re there for the Dreams Take Flight, the children’s charity.
The event starts at 8:00 pm, with the band on at 9:00. A silent auction will be held, with some great items you’ll want to see.
The $10 ticket gets you in the door, and goes entirely to the charity. If you can’t go but want to support Dreams Take Flight, you could go to www.kili.scaife.ca and make a donation, or just buy a ticket anyway. The charity will be grateful.
Behind all the preparations to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in April is a quest to support a fantastic charity, the Ottawa Chapter of Dreams Take Flight, which provides a magical experience for children facing difficult challenges in life.
Here’s a sample of what you’re supporting when you donate to Dreams Take Flight Ottawa through my donation link on this site.
In April 2014 I joined a group climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Dreams Take Flight, a charity which takes children with physical, mental and social challenges on a one day fun filled trip from Ottawa to Florida for a day at the Magic Kingdom.
My preparations, why I did it, who I did it for, and who I did it with are set out on the pages linked above. On the climb pages I’ve set out a journal of the experience.
I want to thank all those friends and family whose support allowed me to complete this challenge successfully and raise $7,535 for Dreams Take Flight, more than half again my original target.
