Rally for Ally!
A great success!Thank you to all who donated to, helped out for, and attended the first fundraiser for the Alexandra Smith Foundation. The event, held at Finnegan’s Wake on February 12, 2011 brought together family, friends, community members, and well-wishers to support Ally Smith and her family. As Rob Foley, a 24-year old Walpole High alum put it, "It was like the whole town of Walpole came out to hug Ally and her family." Rally for Ally, scheduled to run from 4:00 to 10:00 pm, went on past midnight.
Thank you to all who attended, brought in spare change for our Bucket O’ Change, bid on an auction item, bought a tee-shirt, made a donation for a bottle of Rally for Ally wine, and took a chance on the Split-the-Pot raffle. A big thanks to the staff of Finnegan’s Wake for all their hard work in making everyone feel welcome and hugged back!
