Congratulations to 12-year-old Dante DiFelice, his family (parents Max and Patty; big brother Domenic and grandparents Domenic and Margaret) and his incredible team of volunteers for the car wash at Waterdown Collision last Saturday in support of cystic fibrosis. Consider the numbers: four hours, 375 vehicles, 146 volunteers and a grand total of $14,040. Incredible, simply incredible.

The day started with a surprise cheque presentation for $2,000 from Glen Smith and his team and partners at Merit Insurance. There is Merit – again – leading the way by example!

Dante – the youngest recipient ever of an Outstanding Business Achievement (OBA) award (Community Service by an Individual) hosted by the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) – has cystic fibrosis.
