PostSubject: CHRIS JONSSON FUNDRAISING EVENING - OTTAWA BASKETBALL REUNION - FEB 7TH SALA SAN MARCO   Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:17 pm

I wanted to post and link the information about an upcoming event on behalf of Chris Jonsson who is one of the best players to come out of Ottawa. Chris was a star PG playing for Bell HS in late 70's early 80's - check out some of the feature articles from the past insert into your browser:  https://www.google.com/search?q=chris+jonsson++site%3Anews.google.com%2Fnewspapers&source=newspapers#q=chris+jonsson++site:news.google.com/newspapers&start=10
Chris was not only an outstanding player he was an outstanding person. He was a real pioneer for Ottawa basketball, was one of the first guys to earn a full-ride scholarship to Niagara and brought a lot of exposure to our region. Chris is now facing another battle as he's been diagnosed and battling ALS (Lou Gehrig Disease) which is terminal and not a great ailment. Chris lives in Florida so unfortunately not all of his medical bills will be covered so we have decided to host a fundraiser for him. It will be a great evening and basically a basketball reunion. Everyone is invited to attend Friday, February 7th at Sala San Marco 215 Preston Street 7-Midnight. It's a Cocktail Party/Dance, admission is $25.00 and includes some food and an adult beverage. Music provided by recent Carleton Raven grad Kyle Smendziuk (www.extremedj.com) - Kyle has generously donated his time to the cause. We will also be hosting a raffle and donations will be accepted.

We hope this is a fantastic evening for a special person - please feel free to share this with your network. Any questions please don't hesitate to post and I will reply, thanks for your support and hope we see you on the 7th!!

Great night for Chris Jonsson last Friday night as 200 people came out to support one of the "Basketball Brotherhood". We were able to raise over $20,000.00 to help Chris pay some of his medical and other expenses he has and is going to incur. Many eras represented from the Ottawa basketball community. Please visit both www.chrisjonsson.ca and www.ottawahoops.ca for the coverage, photos and other information. There's also info on how you can still donate. Thanks!!
