Fun, family and fantasy marked the first staging of the Rodman's Family Day with the Oshawa Generals. Billed as
Rodman's goes LOONIE for Grandview kids, the event raised $5,000 for the kids.
Packed to capacity, families watching the Oshawa Generals on home ice also got the chance to support local children with special needs and
disabilities, through donations.
One of the highlights of the day was when Andrew, a Grandview kid, walked onto the ice and dropped the puck receiving a standing ovation.
Andrew, at nine years old, has already packed more than a lifetime of medical challenges into his young life. Born 14 weeks too soon, doctors
thought he would never walk, talk or feed himself.
Rodman's will again partner with the Oshawa Generals to treat families to an exciting day on Family Day in 2014.
The Dick Family and the Oshawa Generals team represented by Deke was on hand to make more Grandview kids smile when they handed over the
cheque. The kids had the best time giving Deke high fives.
"We are happy that our family could have been a part of this event," says Kirk Dick, President of Rodman's. "For us it was easy to get
behind the life-changing work that Grandview does. There is so much we can do in the communities where we live and work. We are a part of this
community and we are thrilled to play our part."
