Friends, extended family, co-workers and members of the community were unable to reach out to Kristie to show their love and support due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Close family members were inundated with questions about how Kristie was doing and folks asking if there was anything they could do to help.  With no ability to host the average fundraisers during COVID-19 to help out the family those closest to Kristie were at a loss as to how they would support her during this incredibly difficult time.

Finally Kristie’s sister, Karla Gervais (owner of Karla’s Auction), her parents, Doug and Marlene Ukrainetz (owners of Ukrainetz Auction) and the Mayor of Springside, Jack Prychak and his wife, Verna formulated a plan to create an Online Auction Fundraiser. 

Soon family, friends, Springside Town staff, town council and members of the community were donating items for auction, bidding on the excellent selection of donated items and making financial contributions.

On Wednesday, August 5, 2020 Jack and Verna Prychak were honoured to present Kristie with the proceeds of the auction – a total of $24,708.50. 

Kristie was overwhelmed by the support and help with her medical expenses, those who love her will continue to pray for her health and recovery.
