Congratulations

Kudos for the U15 fundraiser banquet at Wings Tap and Grill March 12 for the trip to nationals

Kudos  for  the U15 fundraiser banquet at Wings Tap and Grill March 12 for the trip to nationals. The organizers, team and Wings did a magnificent job. From the start where team members offered wine and appies to the inspiring guests speakers, Lori Moger and Leah Goldstein, the evening was excellent. It was great to see the team members participating as servers, bus people and MCs.

Hats off  to Wings for providing food and facilities and the organizers for being able to secure Leah Goldstein. Truly a remarkable story and one more example of Canadians excelling.

A great evening, a great job and good luck at the nationals in Calgary.
