We received the following note from Tiffany Bagnall about a BBQ benefit being held this coming Saturday May 23rd for Justin Bax. Justin was injured this past long weekend in an ATV accident and is currently in a hospital in Sudbury.
I am writing to request any help you are able to offer to a benefit this coming Saturday May 23, 2015 for a well-known and highly respected young man who was in a very bad accident over the long weekend.
Justin Bax was riding an ATV at camp when he had an accident. He has suffered brain damage from this and in a coma in Sudbury receiving 24 hour care. Because of this, his fiance and family have been required to take a leave of absence from work and reside in Sudbury while the doctors determine the outcome for Justin. This tragedy has left the family with a huge burden of medical and lodging expenses. Justin and his family are highly respected in our community. Justin’s father Ron Bax has worked for the city of Sault Ste. Marie for many years, they contribute as much as possible to local charities and I really think they deserve some of the support that they give to the community, back in this difficult time.
We will be throwing a public BBQ this Saturday. We will be selling basic barbequed food, there will be games for children with prizes as well as different tournaments for adults to enter in and win a prize. This is where we require the donations, if you are able to donate some type of food or gift certificates that we can use as a prize, it would help more than you know. I have attached the link to the Facebook group that has all contact info available for those in charge of the benefit well as the local support group that was made for Justin, hopefully this can show what a wonderful young man he is and how much he deserves this support.
We would appreciate anything you can do to help this wonderful family get through this tragic time.
Sincerely, Tiffany Bagnall and friends.
