Grandparent’s Day Stroll-A-Thon

Sunday September 10, 2017  we celebrated our 18th annual Grandparents’ Day Stroll-A-Thon Fundraiser. It’s a day spent with family, friends and our extended MSJ community family members celebrating our Elders. We want to thank everyone who contributed to the success of this event as we know it takes a small army for any fundraiser to be successful. Together with your support and the support of local businesses like our Platinum Corporate Sponsor RBC we raised $30,000 that will help MSJ Home with furnishing improvements for all Resident common living room areas. We celebrate our 20th Birthday this month and the upgrades will make a Huge impact for years to come. Thank you for making a difference in the quality of life for the 120 Residents who call MSJ “Home”

What another incredible celebration here at MSJ Home! Grandparents Day is a time for our Residents to SHINE and they sure do an Awesome job at doing so! With all 120 Residents sharing the day with their family & friends there is over 400 people here at MSJ enjoying the Event of the Year for our Residents. With amazing local talent to entertain us and SaskEnergy providing scrumptious BBQ yumminess. Face painting, popcorn & a jumping air castle to keep smiles on the Grandchildren’s faces who can ask for a better day?! We are so blessed with the small army of volunteers it takes to plan, organize and create the party atmosphere it has become.

This year the $23,000 that was raised through your generous  support will enable each of the 6 neighbourhoods at MSJ to benefit from furniture and furnishing upgrades. Our Home is 18 years old and upgrades are in desperate need. The upgrades will directly benefit our Residents which is what this fundraising and all your efforts are truly about!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this year another truly incredible success!

Our Grandparents Day celebration was a huge success by the only measurement tool really important – the huge crowd of Residents, families, staff and visitors wore huge smiles throughout the day. People dressed up in so many unique and different ways. The music and entertainment went well and the children had a blast. Barbeques were SO busy as people went back for seconds, a testament to all GOOD cooks! The actual number of fund-raising participants was somewhat less than previous years, but people were generous. Harold’s Family Foods donated $10,000. Andy Szabo and Rose Jasnoch were declared King & Queen of MSJ Home as they and their families raised the greatest amount of donations for the Stroll-a-thon. Thanks to all of you who support the MSJ Foundation with your generosity that supports the special needs of our Residents not funded by Government including the replacement of furnishings and equipment within our Home.
