More than $3,000 was raised in support of former Legion bartender Sue Pauls on Saturday, says Legion president Al Howse.
Pauls suffered a devastating stroke in November 2022, which left her blind and paralyzed. She is now living in Garden City Manor long-term care.
The fundraiser featured music from Pubdaddy Blues Band, a raffle and food, and attracted about 50 supportive NOTLers.
“One member had donated a hat covered in scratch tickets. She went around and sold tickets on that as well,” Howse said.
The Legion is still accepting donations to help with Pauls’ personal care, clothing, special wheelchair and travel expenses.
Those interested in helping out can donate money in person at the Legion on 410 King St. The Legion does not accept e-transfer donations.
