6th Annual Halloween FUNdraiser for Comfort Care (2015)
Canandaigua Comfort Care Home, a hospice house coming to our very own community (5160 Parrish Street Extension, Canandaigua) to serve two residents who are nearing the end of life, at no cost to them or their families. It is run entirely by volunteers and relies on donations and fundraisers such as these to operate.
Halloween ZUMBATHONS have raised funds that brought vision screenings to all of our Canandaigua Preschools, supported Juvenile Diabetes, Embrace Your Sisters (emergency funds for local breast cancer patients), Mercy Flight and even raised money for our local Veterans to attend the Golden Age National Olympics. Last year, we fundraised for Gleaner’s Community Kitchen to feed our hungry and had an absolute BLAST…even if the HIGH was only 45 degrees!
This was the First Zumbathon! (2010). We raised funds to bring Preschool Vision Screenings to our area since early detection is key to treating eye disorders!
Our second Zumbathon (in 2011) was an Embrace Your Sisters event! We raised money to help local women battling breast cancer to pay bills and cope.
