2018 Face To Face Campaign

 

5Face2FaceGroup

Story by George Sharpe

 

In 2012, John Fairley began a campaign to raise funds for The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County. Now, 16 years later the Face to Face fundraiser has surpassed $1,000,000 dollars in donations.
   “A million dollars” exclaimed John with a face that showed tears of joy. The amount was a surprise to him at the recent unveiling of this year’s total.
   He went on to talk about how, when it first started, he wasn’t sure if it would last 6 years and now it is 16. Face to Face started as a simple neighbourhood campaign. It needed 500 volunteers to ask 10 people for $10. The plan was to raise $50,000 per year to fund various Hospice programs. It has never failed to reach its goal.
   4 years ago, Face to Face made an adjustment in the way the funding would be used. It would be channeled toward a very important area of care. Face to Face would support the Fairley Family Hospice Transportation Program. The program centers on supplying transportation, when needed, to and from the facility for family members to spend time with loved ones. The need is great. Last year The Hospice provided 9,000 rides. Even with 52 volunteer drivers the rides average $10 each way. As always there is never a charge to patients or their families for any Hospice program.

The Fairley Family Hospice Transportation Program now needs a minimum of $90,000 to supply the rides. The Fairley family, along with 250 canvassers as well as help from corporate and personal events have once again exceeded their goal.
   Representatives of presenting sponsor YOUR TV Cogeco work tirelessly to help John and his family in their efforts.
   In its 4th year the Monty Block Party, hosted by Craig and Julie Boyer drew hundreds of people and raised an amazing $13,359.
   A for-fun Basketball game between the Face to Face All Stars and Rafih Style raised $3600. at their annual game.
   John Chauvin, a special friend of Hospice raised $300. and the Ladies Auxiliary Branch399 of the Royal Canadian Legion presented the effort with $2500.

While hosting the event Carol Derbyshire, in her final function as director of the Hospice, was beaming as she announced the amount raised. Along with area donations collected by the tireless canvassers this year’s total was $102,038. An anonymous donation rounded the total to $105,000.
    With that amount, John, the Fairley Family along with countless community volunteers and supporters has surpassed the MILLION DOLLAR mark.
    What is also of note is that it is all direct contribution funds. The Face to Face fundraiser incurs no costs. Therefore the entire amount raised each year remains to be used by the transportation program.
    John Fairley and the Fairley family along with their canvassers, supporters and sponsors have worked very hard over 16 years and the effort certainly shows.

  • Look Who's Cooking At Home

    Pad Thai has been a favourite of mine since my first visit to Thailand more than 20 years ago,” says Drew Dilkens, Mayor of Windsor. Since that memorable trip, he has expanded his cooking skills by experimenting with Thai recipes, including Drew’s version of Pad Thai, which he is sharing with Windsor Life readers. The recipe is so simple that Drew can make it on a weeknight for his wife, Jane Deneau, director of project management at Creative Realities Inc. in Windsor. The meal is also a big hit with the couple’s kids, Madison, 17, and Jack, 14. Fortunately, ingredients that were not always easy to find are now in many local grocery stores. Fish sauce, coconut sugar, tamarind purée and red Thai chilis combine wonderfully to give Pad Thai its family-pleasing taste.
