OFCP would like to thank Sheila Ruggaber and her wonderful team of family, friends and co-workers, for their hard work and commitment to this event. Sheila is the original inspiration behind this “Windsor for Cerebral Palsy Gala”! It was an added bonus to have Sheila’s two beautiful children join the event and assist their Mom with the Raffle draws. Thanks Colin and Courtney!

100% of the proceeds from the Gala will go towards two OFCP Member Funding Programs; the Assistive Devices Funding Program (ADFP) and Life Enriching Activity Fund (LEAF). OFCP Lifetime Members from Windsor and across Ontario will benefit from these funds.

OFCP would like to acknowledge and extend a thank you to our generous sponsors for the Gala. These include the Fogolar Furlan Banquet Hall, Kase Insurance Inc., Empire Life, Hollis Wealth Bolland and Associates, McMillan, CIDEL, TD Bank, Allstream, CUPE Local 8916, Xperience Home Health Care, RONA Sauve’s Home Centre Ltd, Neves Renovations, Palazzi Tile, Loc-It, Knight of Columbus – Belle River, Campeau Small Engine, R Gendreau Plumbing, Belle River Auto Bros and a special thank you to private donation sponsors Roy Walsh and Kay Tuer, Eric and Nancy Colenut, Dan and Yvonne Vickerd, Darin Schiller and George Rabideau.

Another special thanks goes to the Gala’s Guest Speaker, Matt Martinuzzi, who gave an inspiring, motivating speech from his personal, realist viewpoint. He captured the true essence of a person living with cerebral palsy. He was able to maintain100% attention from each and every person who had the privilege of hearing him speak so candidly.

A huge thank you to The Hospice Band who so generously offered their time and their uplifting music for the third year in a row!

A big thank you to all who brought a bag or two of used clothing to support OFCP. Also, a big thank you goes to the driver at CP4CP Trust who brought the truck to Fogolar Banquet Hall.

A special thank you goes to OFCP’s volunteer Board of Directors, as well as OFCP staff, who work proudly to support our members and all people with cerebral palsy and their families.

The night of the Gala we joined together once again to make a difference in Windsor. Thank you to each and every one of you for joining during this spectacular event!

Sheila, thank you once again for all you have done. Your tenacity is truly admired and appreciated by OFCP and so many Lifetime Members who have cerebral palsy all across Ontario who will benefit from all that you do. We look forward to the 6th Windsor for Cerebral Palsy Gala in 2021!! We can only hope it will be an ‘in person’ Gala!

Sheila and Colin
