Benefit Set for Doble Family
(As Posted at http://www.soonews.ca/viewarticle.php?id=13984 September 5, 2007)

A group of community minded volunteers are pulling together a benefit for the Doble family.

On August 12 fifteen-year old Megan Doble, was killed in a van/train accident that also injured her father Kevin and sister Brooke.

"The entire community is feeling a sense of empathy and sadness over this incident" Lianne Vipond, one of the organizers of the Doble Family benfit said.

The Northern Retail Professionals Association (NRPA), Lake Superior Riders,Sault Youth Theatre, Riuniti and Megan's school friends have teamed up to present a special family evening for the community to come together to share memories of Megan and to show their love and support for the family.

A dinner theatre and silent auction followed by a youth dance will take place at Riuniti on Friday September 28, 2007.

All proceeds from this evening will be donated to the Doble Family Trust Fund which has been set up to help the Doble family with their expenses (TD Canada Trust Branch # 3644, Account #6723795).

The Doble family are small business owners in the Sault (Kevanna Studios). A mass e-mail to businesses around town from the volunteer group read " As a business owner yourself you understand better than anyone the emotional and financial burden that can befall a business should the owner suffer a catastrophe such as what the Dobles are experiencing now."

"Our community can help ease the pain and loss of the tragedy by rallying together to enable time for this family to heal, without the immediate pressure of having to concentrate on the photography business." Lipond said.

Business owners or the general public are asked to call David Poluck at 253-2645. Any donation will be accepted.

On behalf of the committee, thank you in advance for your generosity and support. We look forward to seeing you and your staff at the Riuniti.
