Hello Everyone, I am an old friend of Glenn?s at the Amazona bar. I have told him about the comments on the website, and as he is not a registered user, he has asked me to reply on his behalf.
Glenn Says " I am so disappointed with some of the shameful comments shown on this message board about the charity night for Lucy. I and my partner Michele, spent a lot of time to organize this event, with the support of the Lions Club and also the parents of Lucy. We visited many businesses asking for support with raffle prizes, and without exception, everyone was very willing to help, as many of them actually know Lucy personally , as she is a local habitant with her family. The night was well supported with 45 people attending, Jesse Garron and Pat Pope sang free of charge, many thanks to them both. A raffle was held on the night and also 2 prizes were auctioned, also a part of the ticket entrance was paid into the lucy appeal.
It was a great night for a very good cause, and i am so happy that it was well supported in these difficult times. We raised a total of ?523 for Lucy this night, a fantastic amount considering the current situation. I am advertizing now on Power FM, having sponsered the Alex McCrea show between 3-4pm. On monday, 2 days after the quiz night, I rang Alex live on air, and told him to announce how much we raised and to thank all our sponsors and all the people who came on the night. This he did within 10 minutes. The money was given to Ken from the Lions to be banked on Monday into the account of the Lucy charity. We are also advertising in the new Que Pasa news paper, which the new edition, comes out this week.As we know the owners of the newspaper, they have agreed to include a write up about this event, along with photos and also confirming the amount raised. I do not look at this site very often, hence i am only aware now that people are questioning what was raised. Chrissy, you were here on the night and you have been complimentary as to how the event went. If you wanted to know the amount, all you needed to do was to pop up to see me and I could confirm to you the amount. As to the rather negative comments, I have no comment to make. I hope that brings and end to this rediculous subject which should be discussing what else may we all be able to do to help this very special young girl that deserves all the love in the world."
