Annual event raises $3000 for people with disabilities

For Immediate Release – If you weren’t at Brownstones Sports Lounge and Restaurant for Rock for Dimes Sarnia, you should have been.

Three local performers – Suit Up, Dressed to Kill, and Jeff Poolton – rocked for an enthusiastic audience to support March of Dimes Canada.

Altogether, the event raised $3,000, all of which will benefit MODC programs for children and adults with disabilities. The money stays here in Sarnia, funding Stroke Recovery Canada® and our Assistive Devices Program. 

‘Sarnia has been very good to us,’ said Dennis Ullman, Associate Director of Special Events and Community Relations for MODC. ‘Since we started RFD Sarnia, the city has raised $12,600 to support people with disabilities. That money directly, positively impacts a lot of lives.’
