Community rallies around New West family

What's happening Around Town

The Senior Women’s Salmonbellies got a great turnout at a fundraiser on behalf of one of their own.

Coach Savanna Smith and her team organized a fundraiser at their July 14 home game at Queen’s Park Arena for their friend and teammate Emily Goss, who was seriously injured after being hit by an alleged drunk driver in London, England on June 16. Along with admission donations, the team raised money for Goss and her family through raffles, 50-50 and a toonie toss.

A large crowd of friends, family and members of the lacrosse community attended the event.

Anyone wishing to send Emily a message can email her at Family members are by Emily’s side and reading her the many emails and cards of support she’s receiving.
