    Keller Williams VIP in Bells Corners hosted a chili cook off
    fundraiser to raise the money for Emily and her Mom to fly
    to Orlando for another speaking engagement. Someone
    donated Emily’s entire flight anonymously and we thank
    them and everyone else who helps us immensely.

Thanks to Allan Cayer, a member of the
Ottawa South Rotary
and Keller Williams VIP Real Estate Agent, Emily found
out she liked telling others about her fundraising efforts and
about Tyler when she had her first opportunity to speak in
public at a luncheon attended by 13 members. The Club
donated $1,000.

Emily's Speaking Engagements & Events
    October 31, 2008
    When Emily’s grandpa mentioned to the Charity Committee
    at Keller Williams VIP that he was going to be very busy
    helping with his granddaughter’s Charity Garage Sale the
    rest of the committee members were quick to jump on board.
    Theresa Quann-Bakker was instrumental in introducing
    Emily to the other Keller Williams offices in Ottawa who
    chose her as their Youth Charity recipient. Emily was asked
    to speak at their annual Inspirational Breakfast in October
    2008. She took this opportunity to introduce Tyler to the 450
    guests in attendance and was presented with a donation of
    $5,000 from the three local Keller Williams’ offices.

Emily’s grandpa, Paul Desrochers, a real estate broker with Keller
Williams VIP in Bells Corners, introduced Emily at the
Williams International Family Reunion’s Inspirational
in Florida celebrating quiet heroes. The close to 7,000
agents in attendance were so moved by her story that Emily
received over $22,000USD in donations.
