Carmen Mayer and her 8-year-old daughter, Madi, lost their home and dog on January 3rd to a fire in the Hunt Club area of Ottawa, ON.

A fundraiser has been organized to take place at the Royal Oak on Hunt Club this Saturday, January 14th, beginning at 2 p.m.

Advance tickets will be sold for $10.00, if you wish to make a contribution that way.

There will not be cover charged at the door, but a donation table will be set up if you wish to contribute. You can pay via cash donation or, if you prefer, with a gift card to Shoppers, a department store, a grocery store, etc.

Donated items of clothing, household essentials, food, toys, etc. are also appreciated. They have lost everything.

The Royal Oak will be accepting drop-offs of gift certificates and cash donations from now until the fundraiser on January 14th.

If you would like to help out, but are unable to attend, you can make a donation to any of the organizers of this event and they will ensure it gets to Carmen. There will be a 50/50 draw and a silent auction.

The live entertainment will take place from 4-9:30 p.m. and is comprised of The Elementals, Lora Bidner (tentative), Fraulein Eberg, and Full Nelson.
