Halifax Organizers of a benefit dance and auction taking place this Friday for Theresa McEvoy, the Halifax School Board EPA who died tragically on October 14 when her car was hit by a stolen vehicle, say the response from the community has been fantastic.
Proceeds from the event are going to the Theresa McEvoy Trust Fund, which was set up by Westmount School to help her three surviving sons.
Naomi Stewart from CUPE Local 108 says, The generosity from area businesses, schools, Theresas co-workers and dozens of private citizens has been amazing. Were having two auctions, a silent one and live one, Friday night and prizes range from a getaway at a Cape Breton chalet, free nights at Halifax area hotels, Stars on Ice passes, wine baskets, Christmas baskets, clothing, passes to area sports facilities in other words, lots of great stocking stuffers, says Stewart, herself an EPA with the school board.
The fundraiser for the Theresa McEvoy Trust fund takes place this Friday, December 3, at Halifax Civic Workers Club (corner of Bloomfield & Isleville Streets). Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
