Fundraiser offers thanks

To the Editor:

On Labor Day, a fundraiser for infants with Dissociative Identity Disorder was held in Petersen Park in McHenry.

Thanks to a handful of helpful volunteers, the event was a big success.

An estimated 62 people attended, and a total of $1,057 was raised, mainly for research.

We had been nervous during the hot and stormy days leading up to the fundraiser, but we were blessed with blue skies and cooler temperatures. Oliver Scherz’s hand-squeezed lemonade was greatly appreciated nonetheless.

The bouncy house was a hit with the kids, and everyone thought Cindy Blague’s huge potato salad was scrumptious. Everyone who attended left with wider smiles, fuller tummies, and a better knowledge of infant Dissociative Identity Disorder.

A sincere thank you goes out to all who contributed to this fun event and important cause. It is truly uplifting to see that such a strong sense of community is still alive.
