Kids Can Help event raises $6,000 in aid of ailing friend

More than 200 people gathered to support Amy DeWolff at a talent show and silent auction on Dec. 7

More than 200 people came out and helped raise $6,005 as the Kids Can Help program held a talent show and silent auction.

The event was held Dec. 7 at Langley Fundamental Elementary School with the money raised going to B.C. Children’s Hospital.

“The Langley business community was so amazing again and we had great silent auction items,” said Sean Thomas, who founded the Kids Can Help Program five years ago.

The night was dedicated to one of the Kids Can Help team members, Amy DeWolff.

Amy, who turns 11 in February, is currently undergoing chemotherapy to treat osteosarcoma, a bone cancer.

The Langley girl, who attends Langley Fundamental Elementary, was on hand for the event and she went on stage to introduce some of the night’s acts.

During 2013, the Kids Can Help team raised $7,150.09 and the group has several events planned for the coming months, including an almond sale fundraiser, a Great Escape fundraiser, and a coin drive.

Since its inception, the program has raised more than $40,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital.
