The Women’s League of Reading held their 4th annual Halloween Spooktacular at the Wakefield Lodge of Elks on Friday October 26th. The event proceeds netted over $4.6K to benefit Connor’s Canine Fund and will be used towards to purchasing a Seizure Response dog for a Reading student with refractory epilepsy. “We’re so pleased that so many Reading residents, over 230, came together to have a good time and support great cause,” said Erin Sinclair, Women’s League president. Additional event sponsorship was provided by Condon Sullivan Wealth Management & Planning and C.E. Floyd Company. Both companies are run by Reading residents and went the extra mile to support Connor’s Canine.
All the costumes were unique and creative but three costume contest winners emerged: Zoltar the Great mesmerized for best individual, G.L.O.W. wrestlers pinned down best couple, and Juke Box Hero topped the charts for best group costume.
MORE ABOUT DONATIONS TO CONNOR'S CANINE
Connor is an 8 year old boy with refractory (uncontrolled, drug resistant) epilepsy. He is also Jack and Sean’s little brother, a Thomas the Tank Engine fan and an aspiring soccer player.
Unfortunately, despite taking a host of medications, Connor’s tonic clonic (grand mal) seizures are still very frequent. His seizures can also occur at any time of day or night. Connor is at an increased risk for SUDEP because of his uncontrolled epilepsy. A Seizure Response dog will assist Connor’s family with managing his care. To make a direct donation, please visit the Connor's Canine GoFundMe Page.
