Some updates from our colleagues at the Tourette Syndrome Foundation Canada, Edmonton Chapter.
Fundraising Gala, March 22
Tickets are now available for the 7th Annual Planes, Trains and Auctionables Gala in support of the Sunrise Edmonton Rotary and the Edmonton Chapter of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation. The money raised at this event helps us to offer the TS summer camps, inservices, resources, hotline, seminars and support groups. Please go to http://www.planestrainsandauctionables.com/ for more information. If you wish to be seated with other TS families, please e-mail the chapter to let us know that you will be attending and we will arrange it for you. We are also looking for donations. If you have something to donate for the silent auction, please contact us and we will make arrangements to come and pick it up.
Support Group for Spouses and Partners
We have had a few requests from people who are interested in meeting together to form an informal support group for spouses and partners of people with TS in Edmonton . Discussion may include topics like stress reduction, anger management/OCD/ADHD, understanding the disorder and caregiver skills OR perhaps it could just be a chance to share stories and thoughts over a cup of coffee. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to: TSEdChapter@tagline.cc and we will get a group started.
Support Group for Parents in Grande Prairie
We have also had several requests from parents in the Grande Prairie area who are interested in connecting either by e-mail or by getting together to share resources and support. If you are interested, please send an e-mail giving us your written permission to share your e-mail address with the other Grande Prairie families and we will link you up: TSEdChapter@tagline.cc.
