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!!
