ALS Sufferer Douglas Shares Thank you Message for Auction and Fundraising Efforts

Last month, the Sands at Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos hosted a charitable fundraising auction where you all had the opportunity to bid on a One-week stay in a Three-bedroom Ocean Front Suite at our award-winning Grace Bay Beach resort to benefit an ALS sufferer. We are thrilled to share that the effort was a resounding success!

Less than two years ago, a man named Douglas was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). This fundraiser in his name helped the family with costs for medical equipment and raised the funds for an “eyegaze computer,” a device that now enables Douglas to continue to communicate with his family even though his voice fails him.

All proceeds went directly to the family for purchase of the eyegaze computer and the special computer will subsequently be donated to the ALS Society of Nova Scotia for other patients.

Douglas and his family wish to thank all who participated in the auction as well as those who donated to the Go Fund Me page created for the effort.
