The Fox family of Georgetown is throwing a Halloween party at Nashville North to celebrate their deceased daughter and raise funds for research into vaccine safety.
The Katlyn Fox Foundation is a parent-founded charitable foundation focused on raising funds for independent scientific research into the safety and efficacy of children’s vaccines. Its funds go directly to independent medical researchers as well as vaccine awareness groups, says the foundation’s website.
This is the seventh-annual Katlyn Fox Foundation Halloween Dance and Silent Auction. Entertainment includes the outstanding Mountain Lion Trappers Rock band and a Top 40’s/Dance disc jockey.
The goal is to raise $25,000. Funds raised will be donated to Dr. Chris Shaw, a University of British Columbia professor researching how adjuvants in vaccines affect the central nervous system. Examples of his work are available at www.Katlynfoxfoundation.com.
Tickets for the Friday Oct. 30 event ($25 in advance or $30 at the door) can be purchased online at the foundation’s website listed above, or in person at the following local businesses: Norval Pancake Factory, 71 Mountainview Rd. N, Georgetown, McMaster’s Meat & Deli, 110 Main St. S, Georgetown, Integrative Wellness & Detox Centre, 523 Guelph St. Norval, Bauhound Haus, 276 Main St. E, Milton.
