Something very special happened !!
At this year’s 22nd annual Fred Eaglesmith Charity Picnic a single Blueberry Pie HELPED TEN CHILDREN have better lives!
As you may know, we often auction a pie or two at Fred Eaglesmith shows in support of Operation Smile. To date, our fans have helped them raise almost $50,000 in the last few years.
It takes $240 to help one child in a developing country have a cleft palate operation.
At this year’s Picnic the crowd took to their feet as Fred called the auction and the pie climbed and climbed and hit the $2000 mark. The energy at the park was electric as we all felt the power of goodwill. $400 was then immediately donated so that we met our mark of $2400 or ten surgeries and changed lives.
This is over and above the funds raised from ticket sales and draws in support of Elephant Thoughts and Springwater Conservation Area.
We’ve said it before; WE HAVE THE BEST FANS!
