On Nov. 18, the James L. Pedlar Funeral Home hosted a fundraiser for Pelham Cares.
This Ladies Night-Holiday Open House raised over $800.00 as well as collected additional non-perishable food items.
Dazzling the night was wine, cheese, sweets, jewelry and pottery, along with a silent auction of donated goods. Professional speakers provided education on funeral pre-arranging and medical advocacy and navigation for senior care. Special thanks go out to Vanessa Shannon from the funeral home and Andrea Goertzon from Niagara Health Partners for their “Edu-tainment”.
Tina Sidler, owner of the James L. Pedlar Funeral Home, would like thank all the locally owed businesses for their support and for their generous donations to the silent auction.
“The idea was to get some lady’s out for an enjoyable evening. Have some fun, sample some cheese and wine, do some shopping and get informed — all while raising money for Pelham Cares,’ Sidler said.
“It is nice to see people in the funeral home enjoying them selves rather than always here for only sad times. This is a busy time of year for Pelham Cares and I feel very fortunate to be able to contribute. I am honored to serve this community and give back to such an important and helpful organization.”
