Fun while fundraising for a good cause

Our organization recently received a most generous donation from an Alive to Strive supporter, to whom we’d like to say “Thank you!” Marc Rathier, his wife and many of Marc’s colleagues raised over $500 for the Alive to Strive Kidney Fitness Grant Program.

Marc and his wife recently hosted a dinner party at their house for work colleagues to come together and celebrate successes in the work place, and enjoy some fine food, drink and company outside of the office.  In planning their dinner party, Marc knew that people would want to contribute wine or food. In his invitation to guests, he suggested that if people wanted to bring a contribution that they bring a contribution for Alive to Strive in support of kidney health. Among the 15 guests, Marc and his wife helped to raise over $500.

Marc is a dedicated volunteer, having served as a driver for the most recent Alive to Strive race in April. He says he is inspired by the hard work Marie-Eve undertakes for Alive to Strive. “I really believe in the vision of the organization and I recognize the enormous amount of time, energy and sacrifice she has put into make it successful. It is very satisfying to be able to provide support in achieving her goals,” says Marc.

So, what was served at this amazing three-course meal? Guests enjoyed a choice of tender chicken parmesan and grilled vegetables or a mouth-watering filet mignon grilled to choice with grilled vegetables. For dessert, they savoured cheeses and fruits, and apple crisp and ice cream.

Sounds like wonderful evening of friends and good food!
