Fundraiser for Langley fire victims
Randi O’Donnell is hosting a fundraiser in memory of two-year-old Johnny Kleingletink,who lost his life in a devastating house fire in Langley on Jan. 24.
The fundraiser will be held Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Haney Public House in Maple Ridge. Tickets are $15 and will get you a burger and beer. There will also be a 50/50 draw and some local businesses have donated several amazing items to be raffled off including Swan E Set Golf and house cleaning.
O’Donnell said the family felt compelled to do something to help their cousin Ashlee, who is Johnny’s mother. She managed to get her other two young children out of their burning home, but two-year-old Johnny didn’t make it. The little boy’s death has touched the hearts of many people all over B.C.
More than 100 people turned out to a celebration of his life and a balloon release held last Saturday.
