Re: Newmarket charity creates magical night for pediatric patients, families

Thank you so much for the wonderful coverage of Shine Through the Rain Foundation's Pediatric Christmas Party on Dec. 14, including the fabulous photographs that Greg King captured the night of the party. It means a great deal to us to raise awareness of the organization, so thank you to NewmarketToday for helping us achieve that.

We had incredible community support, from donations of toys, to small businesses offering their services for free, including Elsa of York Region, Moon Booth, Little Playscapes, The Hair Company, Em & M Parties and Event — the support was overwhelming!

The additional contributions from our sponsors, Key West, CHUM Christmas Wish and Kiss Naturals, ensured that we could deliver a magical event for the patients and families who attended.

We are so grateful that Newmarket Today was able to capture the spirit of the party and report on the positive impact that our donors, sponsors, volunteers and organization as a whole have made.

Many thanks!

Sarah-Lou Tomlin, Program Services & Development, Shine Through the Rain Foundation
