    I went to a fundraiser on Saturday, November 13 for Margaret Ann’s Place/Camp Erin and it was amazing. I had no idea that this type of organization was available to families at no charge to them.
    While there were many tears at the fundraiser, it was also a time of hope because you could see how the kids have moved on with their life but also did not forget what had happened. The little girl who spoke was very moving. I lost my father at the age of 15 so this organization holds a special place in my heart.
    Hopefully one day I will be able to devote the time to volunteer there!
