It is that happy time of year again! All of the Howard Hanna offices are busily planning their annual Chow-Chow luncheon and raising as much money as we can for the Children's Hospital's Free Care Fund. Today we celebrated our kick-off, and I am honoured to have been chosen as the Condominium Office Chairperson for this year's event. As part of the kickoff, the wonderful staff at Children's took us on a tour, which included a stop at the NICU. Nothing could drive home to me more the importance of this fund, which continues to ensure that no child will be turned away from the hospital because of their inability to pay. Our event will be held at the Condominium Office on South Craig Street on Wednesday, December 12th from 11am-2pm. All of our agents will be working feverishly for the next month gathering donations of food for the luncheon (as well as bringing in some legendary dishes of their own) and also gathering donations of gift certificates and baskets for our Chinese auction and some fabulous special items that will be part of our silent auction. Already agents have been coming to me with great ideas for the event, and we have already had some wonderful items donated to us by people in the office. I am hoping that this year's event will be our most successful ever! Please come back to visit for information on the luncheon, as well as information on how you may purchase tickets or become a sponsor. I hope to see all of you there!
