What a great day to enjoy the festivities as well as raise money for SickKids Hospital! This past Saturday, the 4th Annual We Believe in Abby Family Day was held at Hickstead Park in Schomberg. The weather was perfect for a fun family day in the park. I was excited to be a part of this day for the 4th year. This is a day where we come together to raise funds for SIckKids Hospital. This fabulous event gives back to the community who supports our dear sweet Abby who was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (CHD) at birth. Our community here in Schomberg, ON has been there to support the Eveson family as they cope with a child who has had multiple open heart surgeries and works to raise awareness of CHD.
I have been taking family photos every year with a donation to SickKids. This year I was thrilled to make a $900 donation to the hospital. This was 3 times more than I was able to raise last year, so I was so thankful to all my families who came out for photos. It is so great to see all the returning families that come for photos. This year I opened an hour before the event for those families who couldn’t stay for the fun but still wanted a photo. I love when families even bring their dogs with them to complete the family unit.
This wonderful event was succesful in raising $10,000! I’m looking forward to another wonderful event next year!
