Thank you to all the wonderful people and organizations who supported the seventh annual cancer massage day at Awakenings by Ruth in Chester on October 23.
We were able to turn over $1200 into gas cards for local patients traveling for cancer treatment. In total we have raised over $5,500 in donations in our seven years.
Sincere appreciation goes to the massage therapists who donated their time and space: Ruth Stanton, Ann Bailey, Naomi Moyer and Shirley Littler, and receptionist Joan Creelman.
A huge thanks to Joanne Stanton who donated a plant for raffle, handmade hats for those who donated, cookies and laundry maid labor.
Thanks to the Heritage Deli for supplying the wonderful lunch and Pizza Stone for the great warm breadsticks and fresh salads. They were greatly enjoyed.
Thanks to Lisai's Market for their generous donation of ice and bottled water, to LiquiCorp for the water bags, to Chester Flowers for the balloons and to all the papers who published our press release.
Thank you to the many clients who came for a massage and to those who make donations - we thank you all for making this event so successful and beneficial to our neighbors and friends.
If you are in need of a gas card, please call either Ruth at 875-3914 or Judy Spaulding at the North Springfield Baptist Church 886-8487.
