11/21/17  WOW…..We had four successful events in November! A big Thank You goes out to

  • everyone in the community who supported our Magic/Comedy Show Fundraiser, 50/50 Raffle, and Silent Auction,
  •  Studio 1 Salon owners and stylists, who organized the Cuts for a Cause Fundraiser to benefit the Canton Goodfellows     (Thanks to everyone who got their hair cut too!),
  • Holiday Market and all of their shoppers who donated food items at our Canton Goodfellows Food Drive,
  • and the staffs of West and Liberty Middle Schools, who held their second annual “The Crossover” Basketball Fundraiser, with the Canton Goodfellows as a recipient of a portion of their proceeds.

What a great community we live in!  We couldn’t fully assist our families and children without your support.
