Thank You!

The fundraiser was a HUGE success!!! We were able to raise $3500!! Great job everyone! Thank you to everyone that came and and supported our cause!!! We will be able to create even more smiles than last year! Stay tuned for updates!


Through the Gary Effect, we hope to generate as many smiles as possible!  Without your support, this wouldn’t be possible! So thank you for being a part of this event and for helping us to achieve our goals! Each year we’ve grown, and that’s because of you! So give yourself a pat on the back, hug the person sitting/standing next to you and spread the cheer… you’re awesome!

Huge thank you to those who helped put the event together!! These very special peeps have worked extremely hard for weeks to sell tickets to tonight’s event, coordinate tonight’s events, as well as gather and donate to the fabulous prizes found in our silent auction tonight.  You are truly amazing and we’re lucky to have you – words cannot express our appreciation!  *Insert big round of applause here* Stand up and take a bow!

The following businesses have also made donations to our silent auction.  They believe in the strength that one random act can do for our community and support the Gary Effect.  We ask that when you have the opportunity, you show them your support! Applause for these amazing people and their companies!

We’d also like to extend a very special thank you to our volunteers.   They are a very important part of our day and without their hard work, generosity and commitment, we wouldn’t be what we are!  They donate time, money and gifts, wrap presents until the wee hours of the morning and bundle up to hand out presents for hours on end in the cold Winnipeg weather.   They are our angels! Through them the spirit of Gary lives on!
