For 16 years, Mission Services of London has proudly partnered with the London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors for theannual Homes for Hope Bonspiel. This event, has raised more than $124,000 for MSL’s many programs and services.
As Fundraising and Development Director Ericka Ayala Ronson received a cheque for this year’s total, in the amount of $11,085, we paused for a moment to remember a Bonspiel committee and team member who was not there to share in the applause.
Ken Harper, former President of LSTAR, member of the Bonspiel fundraising committee as well as of the 2013 winning team passed away on January 27th of this year. Doug Pedlar, President of LSTAR described Ken Harper in an article for REM – the premier real estate industry magazine: “Ken was on the Bonspiel committee every year,” he said. “He was a fine man and a credit to both his profession and his community. He will be sorely missed.”
Mission Services of London extends our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and to his colleagues. As we view the picture of the winning team, with Ken Harper holding the trophy, we will be forever grateful for Ken’s efforts in raising more than $282,000 through the Bonspiel and other fundraising events.
